120 full size lockers now in use at Santa Clarita Sheriff’s
Booster Club has made a big purchase that will offer some much needed storage
space for local deputies.
120 full size equipment lockers have been installed at the
station, thanks to a $50,000 purchase by the Club. The lockers will now be put
to use by deputies, who are required, or choose to carry extra equipment
weighing up to 100 pounds.
The equipment includes things to better prepare the
responders for any emergency, like CPR masks, bolt cutters, fire suppression
gear, and crowd control devices.
In the past, deputies would have to lug the equipment around
the station, finding random corners to store it in. Now they will be able to
use the lockers, which are more secure and are located in close proximity to
the Sheriff’s vehicles.
