The department will use the funds to purchase 36 new self-contained breathing apparatuses (SCBA), as well as a filling station for the devices. The department’s existing SCBA are 20 years old and scheduled to expire under existing safety standards this year.
The department’s air-filling station was more than 25 years old and recently broke, requiring crew members to take their tanks to a North Tonawanda fire station for filling.
