FEMA grant awarded to Sherburne Fire Department

SHERBURNE – The Sherburne Fire Department was recently awarded $99,484 from the Assistance to Firefighters grant program that is run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The funds will be used to purchase 22 self contained breathing apparatuses (SCBA), also known as air packs.



“These funds are absolutely critical to the Sherburne Fire Department,” said U.S. Representative Richard Hanna, who wrote to FEMA in support of the grant application. “This is wonderful news for the department and the community. We must ensure both our firefighters, and the communities they serve, are kept safe. This grant funding will help do just that.”
