Sen. Udall promotes fire department grants
U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., encourages Colorado's fire departments to apply for competitive grants to help them meet their firefighting and emergency response needs and better protect Colorado communities, according to a release from the senator's office.
Federal Emergency Management Agency's Assistance to Firefighters Grant program gives Colorado fire departments the chance to compete for a portion of $32 million to more effectively protect communities from the threat of fire. This Fire Prevention and Safety Grant funds projects that reach high-risk populations and that decrease rates of injuries and death caused by fires.
To request a letter of support on behalf of an application, fire departments should contact Udall's regional office nearest them. Call Mike Saccone at 202-224-4334.
