    SPACE ANNOUNCES $29,000 GRANT FOR WILMOT FIRE AND RESCUE
    02/26/09
    - Grant Awarded for Operations and Safety -

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Zack Space (OH-18) is announcing that the Wilmot Fire and Rescue has received $29,378 in an Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) that will be used for operations and safety programs.

    Congressman Space said, “This grant will allow the volunteer firefighters of Wilmot Fire and Rescue to continue to safeguard residents. As volunteers, these brave men and women routinely put their lives on the line for the benefit of all; this grant money is vital to ensuring that they can safely and effectively carry out their efforts.”

    Awarded through the Department of Homeland Security, AFGs are given to localities to expand their fire operations and safety programs.

    The Assistance to Firefighters Program is divided into two areas: Operations and Safety Program is designed to address health and safety through training and equipment; The Vehicle Acquisition Program is designed to address transportation needs. Since 2004, almost $2.75 billion has been awarded nationally through this program.

    Congressman Space has represented Ohio's 18th Congressional District since 2007. He is working to restore integrity to the office, expand Ohio's economy, and support renewable energy.

    Default generator

    The 29,000 is the installed price. This generator will power the entire fire station, and the fire station will be used as a shelter when needed.
