WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Rep. Mike Michaud announced today that the Eddington Fire Department and the Denmark Volunteer Fire Department are receiving nearly $58,000 in operations and safety grants. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is providing $34,675 to Eddington and $23,228 to Denmark as part of its Assistance to Firefighter Grant (AFG) Program.

Eddington's grant funds will pay for an air supply refill system. In Denmark, the funding will cover equipment needs like hoses and nozzles.

"These investments are critical to providing our brave first responders with the equipment they need to effectively do their jobs," said Michaud. "Firefighters put their own safety on the line day-in and day-out, and these additional resources are central to keeping them as safe as possible while they serve our communities."

According to the Department of Homeland Security, the AFG program is an important component of the larger, coordinated effort to strengthen the nation's overall level of preparedness and ability to respond to fire and related hazards. The AFG program makes investments directly to fire departments and EMS organizations to enhance their ability to protect the health and safety of the public, as well as that of first responders.
