FEMA Approves $47,620 Assistance To Firefighters Grant (AFG) To The Gilmanton Fire Department

 

The Gilmanton Fire Department will receive $47,620 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for an Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG). The grant will be used to purchase a new air compressor / air refill station to be used by Gilmanton firefighters in refilling their breathing apparatus tanks.

 

The primary goal of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) is to meet the firefighting and emergency response needs of fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency medical service organizations. Since 2001, AFG has helped firefighters and other first responders obtain critically needed equipment, protective gear, emergency vehicles, training and other resources necessary for protecting the public and emergency personnel from fire and related hazards.

 

This grant is funded through FEMA’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program. Eligible applicants include local fire departments, fire districts, nonaffiliated EMS organizations, tribal fire departments and State Fire Training Academies. The grant applications are submitted from each agency directly to FEMA, where the applications are reviewed and scored by fire service personnel from throughout the nation.
