Fairlea Volunteer Fire Department (WV) has received a federal $74,053 Operations and Safety grant.
The grant, announced by Sen. Jay Rockefeller, Sen. Joe Manchin and Rep. Nick Rahall, all D-W.Va., helps equip the department with personal protection equipment, rescue equipment and emergency vehicles. It also helps fund professional training and equipment for wellness programs.
“Volunteer firefighters in West Virginia are our selfless heroes who constantly put themselves on the front lines by protecting our communities, homes and families from harm. The very least we can do for their service is to make sure they are equipped with the best available safety protections the next time they are called to action,” said Rockefeller.
