BUG Fire receives $198K grant

A grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will give the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department a breath of fresh air as they replace aging equipment. The department was awarded a FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant in the amount of $198,895.24 to replace its self-contained breathing apparatus. It means new air bottles and custom-fit face masks that will get them compliant with current safety standards.  BUG Fire Department Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says the combination of grants like this and its fundraising efforts allow them to stretch the taxpayer dollar.

Vandertie thanks the community for their ongoing support as all the money earned goes right back into the department’s operations.
