The Portage Police department is pleased to announce a $4,200 donation from NIPSCO for the purchase of 6 soft body vests. This donation will benefit the Portage Fire Department medics assigned to the Portage Police Department SWAT team. SWAT medics have large, heavy entry vests that are cumbersome and cannot be worn during routine daily operations. Equipping medics with soft-body armor vests will allow a medic to get close to a dangerous scene should his or her normal vest not be available. The donation is one of many from NIPSCO as they continue their effort to support first responders in the community.
