Moulton, Warren, Markey Announce $30,000 Grant for Saugus Fire Department

May 26th, 2017

Moulton: “Our Firefighters Play an Integral Role in Keeping Our Communities Safe”

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA), United States Senator Elizabeth Warren, and United States Senator Edward Markey announced today that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded nine fire departments in Massachusetts over $1.25 million in round six of the 2016 Assistance to Firefighters Grants. These grants are awarded to fire departments in order to provide critical resources needed to train and equip emergency personnel to meet official standards, increase efficiency and interoperability, and help make departments and the communities they serve more resilient.

The FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grants awarded today to Massachusetts fire departments include:

• $30,000 grant to the Saugus Fire Department for three thermal imaging cameras

“Our firefighters play an integral role in keeping our communities safe,” Congressman Seth Moulton said. “They deserve top-quality equipment to do their jobs, and this federal grant will enable the Saugus Fire Department to upgrade its thermal imaging cameras so they can quickly and safely fight fires and save lives. I’m grateful to FEMA for recognizing the need to invest in our local fire departments.”

“Massachusetts firefighters put their lives on the line every day to keep our families safe, and they should have the best resources available to safely and effectively protect our communities,” Senator Elizabeth Warren said. “Firefighters deserve our support, and this federal funding will help provide training and tools our fire departments need to do their jobs.”

“Our firefighters are committed to ensuring the safety and security of our cities and towns, and these new grants will strengthen their ability to do so. Our first responder heroes deserve the best equipment and resources available to them so they can continue to assist Massachusetts residents in their time of need,” said Senator Edward J. Markey. “I commend the fire chiefs and local leaders who worked and partnered to obtain these lifesaving federal funds.”
