Congressman Chris Collins Helps Secure $78,897 Grant for the Village of Warsaw Fire Department
Williamsville, NY- Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today announced $78,897 in federal funding for the Village of Warsaw Fire Department. The grant was allocated through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program (AFG), which is designed to help first responders improve their capability to respond to fires and emergencies of all types.
“Providing the necessary funding for our first responders is an excellent and prudent use of federal money,” said Congressman Chris Collins. “Our local heroes need the proper resources to do their jobs and protect our communities. Many small fire companies and emergency medical service providers are unable to purchase necessary equipment upgrades due to financial limitations. This funding will help create more efficient and effective first responders, and I am proud I was able to help the Village of Warsaw Fire Department secure this money.”
