Assistance to five volunteer fire departments in Grant County

Five volunteer fire departments in Grant County have been

awarded federal Assistance to Firefighter Grants that are

administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

FEMA is a part of the United State Department of Homeland

Security.

The largest grant has been awarded to the Glen Haven Fire 

Department, $235,000. The grant will allow the department

to buy a new tanker that will replace an outdated vehicle

which was converted from a previous use for firefighting.

The Cuba City Fire Department received a grant for just over

$150,000. It will allow the department to buy 24 self-contained

breathing apparatus air packs, spare breathing air cylinders,

and 20 individually fitted self-contained breathing apparatus

masks.

A grant for just over $110,000 has been awarded to the

Muscoda Fire Department. It will allow the Muscoda Fire

Department to buy 17 self-contained breathing apparatus

air packs, spare breathing air cylinders, and 17 individually

fitted self-contained breathing apparatus masks.

The Mount Hope Fire Department has been awarded a grant

for just over $61,000. It will also allow the Mount Hope Fire

Department to buy nine (9) SCBA air packs, spare breathing

air cylinders and individually fitted SCBA masks.

The Stitzer Fire Department has been awarded an Assistance

to Firefighters Grant for just over $22,000. The Stitzer Fire

Department plans to use the grant to buy a commercial

washing machine, a turnout gear dryer, and a self-contained

breathing apparatus mask fit testing machine.

Since the establishment of the Assistance to Firefighters

Grant program in 2001, Grant County communities have 

received more overall AFG awards than any other 

Wisconsin county.
