Grant County (WA) Fire District 5 Awarded $900k for Aerial Truck

Grant County (WA) Fire District 5 has been awarded a nearly $900,000 AFG grant to purchase a 2022 aerial truck, reports ifiberone.com.

The $877,523 grant was the largest for apparatus acquisition given out in WA and third largest in the country, according to the report. The apparatus is expected to be delivered toward the end of 2022.

Officials note that the grant comes with a 5% match, meaning taxpayers will be responsible for about $44,000.

The department has secured more than $1.7 million in grants through FEMA program over the last two years, as a 2020 grant replaced its air packs, the report says.

Fire officials plan to fly to NE in December to dot all the remaining I’s and cross similar T’s.
