ECHO Helps Glen Haven Colorado Volunteer Fire Department
Glen Haven was hard hit by the Colorado flood in September of 2013. The small mountain community lost the only road in and out of town, and many residents lost their homes and businesses. Glen Haven's volunteer fire fighters worked long hours trying to rebuild foot bridges and clear debris for the town and put out a call for much needed chain saws. They received Poulan chain saws, but they could only be used for limbing trees due to their small engine size.
Golden Eagle Distributing was contacted for a chain saw donation, and was happy to help by sending a CS-590-20 Timber Wolf to Glen Haven to handle the BIG trees.
