Energy company donates emergency floodlights to BSO
A large energy and petrochemical concern donated two diesel-powered emergency floodlight arrays to the Bossier Sheriff’s Office last Friday, Feb. 21.
Enterprise Products Partners L.P. purchased the powerful 4,000–watt lighting units from United Rentals of Bossier City to donate them to the Sheriff’s Office after Enterprise area manager Kevin J. Cryblskey met Bossier sheriff’s crime scene investigator Sgt. David Faulk at a Louisiana Emergency Planning Commission meeting. Cryblskey, wanting to make a contribution to the sheriff’s office, asked Faulk what equipment Enterprise might donate, and Faulk mentioned the emergency lights.
Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington said, “We’re very grateful for the generosity and public spirit shown by Enterprise Products Partners in donating these lighting units. It shows that Enterprise takes public safety issues very seriously and cares about the well-being of the community. These are good corpo rate citizens.” Faulk said, “These light plants will be very valuable to us. Often we have to take care of emergency situations and crime scenes outdoors after dark in remote locations. These lights are so powerful, these two units could illuminate an area the size of a football field.”
