WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud today announced nearly $400,000 in FEMA Assistance to Firefighter Grants to the towns of Bridgewater, Brownfield, and Skowhegan. The Bridgewater Fire Department will receive approximately $25,000 for personal protective gear, worn by firefighters in dangerous environments; the Brownfield Volunteer Fire Department will receive nearly $239,000 for a new tanker truck, used for transporting large amounts of water to emergencies; and the Skowhegan Fire Department will receive nearly $135,000 for self contained breathing apparatuses.

"Supporting our first responders means investing in, and providing them with, first-rate equipment," said Michaud. "These grants from FEMA help the brave firefighters who protect our communities better do their jobs. These are important investments from FEMA, and I know they will help the fire departments in Bridgewater, Brownfield, and Skowhegan continue to respond to emergencies safely, quickly, and effectively."
