The $2300 Puget Sound Energy Foundation grant allowed SWITMO to purchase the following safety equipment in 2014. President Gene Joy stands beside the equipment that was purchased. The safety equipment consists of a portable, lightweight defibrillator; an up-to date medical kit with Sam splints and Quick Clot packets; a satellite SPOT emergency locator with a one year membership; 25 pair of quality safety glasses; four radios for quick communication between trail work teams; two snatch blocks with safety stops and cable clips for safer cable crossings; two heavy-duty harnesses for power trimmers making the power trimming work easier and safer for the users; and a climbing safety helmet for a volunteer to use in dangerous situations. In January 2107 the Foundation gave a $500 grant which will be used for trail projects.

Sarah Nevares of Sierra Pacific Industries hands Duane Melcher of SWITMO a check for $500 from the Sierra Pacific Foundation. SWITMO Board members Gene Joy and Marv Remillard look on. The $500 will purchase light-weight heavy-duty aluminum loppers, folding saws, scabbard saws, and new cables and clamps for heavy hand winches.

The $600 they gave to SWITMO in 2014 was used to help pay for safety equipment, tools, a portable movie screen for programs, and gas and oil for chain saws, power trimmers, and motorized wheelbarrows. The $400 given for 2015 will be used for trail maintenance expenses as will the $500 given in 2016.
