Federal grants allow for more firefighters

Continue reading below

The city will be able to hire up to eight firefighters as a result of $1.7 million in federal grants. The funding was awarded by the US Department of Homeland Security in the form of two grants, one through the Assistance to Firefighters program, and the other through the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response, or SAFER, program. The grants will allow the department to hire six to eight firefighters. They will also fund hazardous material technician training for firefighters and other training. “Funding from the federal government will assist and address essential needs that our department has encountered,” Fire Chief David Butler said in a prepared statement. “We are thankful that we have been awarded these grants and will take full advantage of this opportunity to provide quality work to the residents of the city.”
