Mount Sinai Fire District (NY) Getting Grant for Equipment

The Mount Sinai Fire District (NY) is receiving a $470,585 federal grant for equipment upgrades.

The fire department, which has served both the community and the waters of the Long Island Sound since 1930, will use the funds to update communications equipment to meet federal regulations about narrow band channel transmissions for more efficient and dependable communication.

“This Grant Award will be used towards upgrading our 25 year-old Radio Room and improving our fire ground radio interoperability,” said James Hansen, chairman of the Mount Sinai Board of Fire Commissioners. “These upgrades will improve firefighter safety and help us provide better fire protection for our community now and in the future.”

The grant comes from the 2012 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.
