Senators Stabenow and Peters Announce Support for Tittabawassee Township Fire DepartmentThursday, September 15, 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C - U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (MI) and Gary Peters (MI) today announced that Tittabawassee Township Fire Department will receive $97,207 from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to purchase to replace self-contained breathing apparatuses. This equipment is used by fire firefighters to breath clean air when they are in a substandard breathing environment. 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 Tittabawassee Township Fire Department purchase new equipment needed by firefighters to safely respond to emergencies.”
