Aberdeen Firefighters Secure Grant For New Gear

ABERDEEN, Wash. – The Aberdeen Fire Department is getting some new gear, thanks to the Federal Assistance to Firefighters grant, Councilman John Smith said at last week’s council meeting “it’s for $71,336 and will be used to purchase new firefighter turnout gear.”
Smith thanked administrators of the fire department for their time spent on applying for these grants over the years “It has saved the city considerable money, they’re not just doing it, they’re writing excellent grants and getting the money, over $600-thousand since 2001.”
The most recent grant will require a 5% match from the city.
