North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey will present checks to three emergency response units in Scotland and Robeson counties and present an Order of the Guardian Award during visits scheduled on Friday, April 29.
Commissioner Causey, who is also the State Fire Marshal, will present $5,000 grant checks each to the Laurel Hill Fire Department, Rowland Rescue Squad and Pembroke Rescue Squad.
These checks are the result of a $250,000 contribution made by the N.C. Surplus Lines Association to help firefighters and rescue squads in North Carolina.
“It is an honor for me to personally present these surplus lines checks, courtesy of the NCSLA,”
Commissioner Causey said. “This money will help needy emergency units better respond to critical life saving situations.”
The commissioner will also present an Order of the Guardian Award to Richard Taylor later that afternoon. The Order of the Guardian Award is the highest award presented by the Department of Insurance.
The media is invited to attend and cover these events.
