Penn Yan Fire Department receives $210K grant
PENN YAN — The Penn Yan Fire Department plans to replace some outdated air packs thanks to a large federal grant.
The $210,285 grant was announced Monday in a press release from the office of Congressman Tom Reed.
The money comes from the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program of the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency and is meant to bolster and support the nation’s preparedness and response to fire and other hazards.
The program has provided $7.1 billion to U.S. fire departments since 2001.
