WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, Congressman Mike Michaud announced that the Bradley Volunteer Fire Department and the Madison Fire Department will receive nearly $325,000 in operations and safety grants through FEMA's Assistance to Firefighters Grant program. FEMA will provide $142,500 to Bradley and $179,835 to Madison to fund new equipment at each department.

"This funding will help ensure that first responders in Bradley and Madison have the best resources available to effectively respond to emergencies," said Michaud. "Our firefighters put the safety of others ahead of their own every day in order to protect the public. This funding will help them purchase the high-quality equipment that they need to help them do their job."

Bradley's grant will be used to purchase a new brush fire truck, a type of fire engine specifically designed to assist in fighting wildfires and responding to other emergencies in the wilderness. In Madison, assistance will be used to purchase 22 new air packs for firefighters entering burning structures, as well as a new air compressor and refill system.
