U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters announced $275,910 for the Flint Township Fire Department to help purchase equipment. This grant comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Assistance to Firefighters Grants program.
“Our firefighters in Flint Township put their lives on the line to protect our families and homes,” said Senator Stabenow. “Thanks to these new resources, these brave men and women will have the equipment they need to help them do their jobs more safely and effectively.”
“Families in Flint Township rely on firefighters to protect their homes, businesses, families and their personal safety from potential hazards,” said Senator Peters. “This funding will help Flint’s firefighters and first responders improve their capability to respond to fires and other critical emergencies.”
Eligible fire departments and Emergency Medical Services organizations in Michigan and across the country can apply for Assistance to Firefighters Grants.
