Mikulski, Cardin Announce Federal Funding to Purchase Life-Saving Firefighting Equipment

Tuesday, July 15, 2014  U.S. Senators Barbara A. Mikulski and Ben Cardin (both D-Md.) today announced the Grasonville Volunteer Fire Department has been awarded $247,072 in federal funding through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program to purchase life-saving firefighting equipment.  As the Chairwoman of the Appropriations Committee, Senator Mikulski fights each year to increase federal funding for the fire grants program. Senator Cardin is a member of the Finance Committee.

"I know how important this funding is to Maryland communities – often it's the difference between life and death. First responders protect our homes and communities, and the federal government has a responsibility to protect them by providing them with the tools they need to do their jobs safer and smarter," Senator Mikulski said. "Every day when our first responders report for duty, they don't know what they will face. That's why I fight every year for the equipment, training, and staffing our protectors and communities deserve." 

"Our first responders are courageous enough to run towards danger while we are running away from it," said Senator Cardin. "I am proud to fight for federal funding to ensure that these brave men and women have the right resources they need to protect the families of Queen Anne's County and to return home safely to their own home after each call. I thank the members of the Grasonville Volunteer Fire Department for their vital and selfless service to the people and businesses of Queen Anne's County."

The Grasonville Volunteer Fire Department will use the competitive award to purchase new Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) to replace old SBCA that are non-compliant with National Fire Protection Association standards and non-conducive for interoperability. This lack of interoperability creates a real life safety risk for the first responders. For more information, please contact Jason Anthony at 410-827-8100.

AFGP grants fund firefighting equipment, personal protection equipment, training, firefighting vehicles, firefighter/first responder safety projects, and staffing recruitment and retention, as well as public fire safety education.

Since 2001, Maryland fire departments and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) units have received over $140 million in fire grant funding, just over $2 million of which has gone to fire departments and EMS units in Queen Anne's County.
