Salem Township, Pa. — Slickville Volunteer Fire Department officials received a $3,500 check Monday, Feb. 25, from Energy Transfer that will be used to purchase hand-held gas meters for first responders in the field. This lifesaving equipment is critical for firefighters to perform their jobs safely and efficiently.

Slickville Fire Chief Mike Perfetta said, “Energy Transfer’s financial support is greatly appreciated by the Slickville community, and we would like to thank them for this generous donation.

“These monitors add another layer of security for our firefighters,” he added.

Energy Transfer public affairs specialist Chris Koop spoke about the company’s commitment to being a good neighbor at the check presentation. “At Energy Transfer, we look for opportunities to invest in the communities we operate in because that’s what it means to be a part of a community.

“We work here, a number of our employees grew up here and live here in Salem Township, and we realize that being a part of a community comes with an obligation to support our neighbors and the first responders who ensure our safety,” Koop continued.

Energy Transfer is finishing sections of the Mariner East 2 pipeline project throughout Pennsylvania. The Mariner East 2X pipeline, which parallels Mariner East 2, is expected to be in service in late 2019. The Mariner East system of pipelines is designed to provide much-needed natural gas liquids takeaway capacity for the Marcellus and Utica Shale production areas of eastern Ohio, West Virginia and western Pennsylvania.
