Devon Energy recently made donations to 12 volunteer fire departments in Eddy and Lea counties totaling nearly $20,000 in support of training, equipment and other needs.

In addition to the monetary donations, Devon also donated a 2012 Ford F-250 pickup truck to Eddy County Fire Service.

“Devon is proud to support emergency responders throughout Eddy and Lea counties,” said Dan Werner, senior operations superintendent for Devon. “They are vital to protecting and serving our communities, and we are grateful for their service.”

In a release, Devon said it is committed to safety and being a good neighbor in southeastern New Mexico. As its operations continue, its strong focus on safety also continues.
