Thursday, September 15, 2022

WASHINGTON, D.C - U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (MI) and Gary Peters (MI) today announced that Solon Township Fire Department will receive $40,000 from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to get a new breathing air compressor. The funding comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) program.


“Our firefighters put their lives on the line to protect our families, homes, and communities,” said Senator Stabenow. “These new resources will help keep the public safe and give our first responders the equipment they need to do their jobs more safely and effectively.”


“It’s important that our fire departments have the resources to purchase necessary safety equipment to continue serving their communities effectively,” said Senator Peters, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “This grant will help the Solon Township Fire Department purchase new equipment needed by firefighters to safely respond to emergencies.”
