The Halifax Fire Department was informed today by Senator Browns office, that we have been awarded $136,440 in DHS Assistance to Firefighters Grants. This grant will be used to replace our current hose stock and to replace the fire station bay exhaust system with a Plymovent system which capture vehicle exhaust at the source.
This is the third grant the department has received in the last three weeks. The others are from WAL-MART for $1,600 and from the Massachusetts Dept. of Fire Service SAFE grant, $4,665.
When more information regarding the grant is available on the AFG grant I will let you know.
