Volunteer Fire Departments Receive Funds

by Nichole Hannahs on April 29, 2010

Two volunteer fire departments in our area see funds from the Assistance to Firefighter’s Grant Program sponsored through FEMA.

Senator Sherrod Brown said the Roseville Volunteer Fire Department will receive $82,139, while the Senecaville Volunteer Fire Department in Guernsey County gets $92,250.

The money can be used to  buy new vehicles or perform operational and safety equipment updates.

Since 2001 nearly $4 billion in grant money has been awarded to first responder organizations.
