Grant to buy protective fire equipment

The Sylvania Fire Department has received a federal grant for $120,877. There is a 5 percent cost match, requiring that Sylvania contribute $6,043, making the total amount of money received by the fire department $126,920. The money received from the grant will be used to purchase personal protective gear and equipment for firefighters. The fire department will now be able to update its older turnout gear and self-contained breathing apparatuses that needed to be replaced, as well as the aging thermal imaging camera. The award of the grant was provided by the Assistance to Firefighters Grant administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Sylvania Fire Department says that it is tremendously appreciative of the grant award, and will continue its efforts to protect the lives and property of Sylvania, Screven County and its citizens.
