The primary goal of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) is to meet the

firefighting and emergency response needs of fire departments and non-affiliated

emergency medical service organizations.  Since 2001, AFG has helped firefighters

and other first responders to obtain critically needed equipment, protective gear,

emergency vehicles, training and other resources needed to protect the public and

emergency personnel from fire and related hazards. 

The department was fortunate enough to receive an AFG Grant in February, 2011 totaling

$750,000 (which includes a 10% matching amount of $75,000 being contributed

by the City).  These funds will be used for the purchase of a 100-Foot Platform Ladder Truck.

We are currently in the process of receiving bids for this purchase.
