Senators Stabenow, Levin Announce Grants for Wyandotte and Trenton Fire Departments to Hire Firefighters

Thursday, Dec 13, 2012

Michigan Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today welcomed the announcement of two federal grants to help the fire departments in Wyandotte and Trenton hire more firefighters.

Senator Stabenow said, "Our firefighters provide critical, courageous service to communities like Wyandotte and Trenton across Michigan. These grants provide the resources they need to perform their duties safely and protect the public."

"It is vital that we maintain the fire protection our citizens need," Levin said. "These grants will help the fire departments in Trenton and Wyandotte hire more first responders to protect their communities when an emergency strikes."

Wyandotte Fire Department will receive $616,876 and Trenton Fire Department will receive $736,410 from the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters grant program.

The Assistance to Firefighters Grants are part of the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program, a competitive grant process to help ensure that fire departments nationwide have the frontline firefighters they need to protect their communities.
