Grant Money Flowing To Defiance

The Defi­ance Fire Depart­ment is get­ting almost $10,000 in fed­eral grant money.

$9,595 to be exact, accord­ing to U.S. Sen­a­tor Sher­rod Brown’s office. The money will be used for oper­a­tions and safety, and is being pro­vided through a grant by the U.S. Depart­ment of Home­land Security’s Fed­eral Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency Assis­tance to Fire­fight­ers Grants (AFG) pro­gram.

The Defi­ance Fire Depart­ment was awarded this fund­ing as part of the round 17 com­pet­i­tive fis­cal year AFG pro­gram, which helps fire­fight­ers and other first respon­ders improve their abil­ity to pro­tect the pub­lic and them­selves.

Train­ing, facil­ity upgrades and mod­i­fi­ca­tions and sup­plies, such as pro­tec­tive equip­ment are all included.
