Mankato Volunteer Fire Department (MVFD) recently received a donation of canned emergency drinking water from Anheuser-Busch to help keep its responders hydrated as they battle wildfires this season. A pallet of canned drinking water was dropped off by local Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, Pestinger Distributors. The water will help maintain firefighters' hydration during long incidents or disasters such as wildfires, which is a major safety concern for many departments.

"Firefighters lose a tremendous amount of fluid during high-intensity response such as battling wildfires. Proper hydration is critical to ensure the safety of our firefighters and keep them performing at their best," said Brian Shulda, chief.

The water was donated by Anheuser-Busch through a partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC).
