Video Tuesday: Cabot’s Donation to Volunteer Fire Companies Makes an Impact

Welcome to Video Tuesdays, a space on our blog to reflect on videos that have documented the success of Cabot Oil & Gas over the past few years and celebrate the advances we’re making in both the oil and gas industry as well as the community that we serve.

In 2011, Cabot provided $25,000 to three volunteer fire companies in Susquehanna County toward the purchase of new equipment. With its portion of the $25,000, the Springville Volunteer Fire Company was able to update their radio communications – a vital tool used in every emergency situation. As the video demonstrates, mountains in Springville, Pennsylvania have made communication difficult for the fire company in past years.

Cabot’s donation has alleviated the fire company’s need to constantly update and re-purchase radios and other communication tools, which will allow the company to focus all of its efforts and resources on the community. Cabot believes in the power of a strong, independent community, and seeks to enable other service providers with the tools necessary to help Pennsylvania flourish.

For more information about Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation’s social responsibility and ongoing community outreach, visit our website’s Community Outreach page or contact us at Ask Cabot. Tomorrow, our “Drilling Down” segment will illustrate the economic benefits and community support that Cabot’s drilling has helped to create.
