Grant Will Provide New Gear for Hammond (NY)

Hammond Fire and Rescue (NY) will receive a $100,463 grant from the Assistance Firefighters Grant Program, given through FEMA.

The Hammond Fire and Rescue Department will use the funding to purchase 30 to 40 new sets of turn-out gear for firefighters.

“With this funding, Hammond firefighters can focus on their important work knowing that they have reliable new equipment,” U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer said. “These investments will help ensure that our local heroes can continue their life-saving work and will enable them to respond as effectively and safely as possible with new turn-out gear.”

The Assistance to Firefighters Grants are administered by the Department of Homeland Security Federal Emergency Management Agency in cooperation with the Department’s United States Fire Administration. The grants are awarded on a competitive basis to the applicants that most closely address the program’s priorities and demonstrate financial need.
