Homeland Security Grant Purchases
During 2013, the department was approved to purchase new boat motors for our fire boat and a new fire pump through the Homeland Security Grant that we received through Port Panama City. We also received an AFG Grant to purchase new radio equipment, assuring that we remained P25 compliant by FEMA Standards. We have purchased and placed in service state of the art Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus to protect our personnel in fires and other hazardous respiratory situations. The maintenance on this equipment is completed by Operations Personnel who have been specifically trained as certified technicians by the MSA Company.
