Tuesday, August 07, 2018

U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters today announced $104,762 for the Clay Township Fire Department to replace the ventilation system in two fire stations. This grant comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Assistance to Firefighters Grants program.


"Our firefighters in Clay Township 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.”


“Firefighters in Clay Township are the first to respond when disaster strikes, and this funding will help keep firefighters safe while serving their communities,” said Senator Peters.


“This funding enables our fire department to replace necessary ventilation systems in 2 fire stations, keeping our fire fighters in a safe work environment," said Artie Bryson, Clay Township Supervisor. “Receiving this grant plays a crucial role in protecting the citizens of Clay Township. We are very thankful for the continued support of Senators Stabenow and Peters.”


Eligible fire departments and Emergency Medical Services organizations in Michigan and across the country can apply for Assistance to Firefighters Grants. These competitive grants help first responders purchase the equipment and obtain the training needed to handle fire-related hazards. More information about the grant can be found at
