McDermitt Fire Department receives $11K grant
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded McDermitt Fire District Operations and Safety a $11,543 grant.
The Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program includes grants to the fire departments and emergency medical services organizations. The awards aim to enhance response capabilities and to more effectively protect the health and safety of the public with respect to fire and other hazards.
The grants enable local fire departments and emergency medical services organizations to purchase or receive training, conduct first responder health and safety programs, and buy equipment and response vehicles. The program also supports regional projects in which multiple organizations serving more than one local jurisdiction benefit directly from activities implemented with grant funds.
