$160K Grant for Fire Department Air Packs
June 5, 2017

The Chillicothe Fire Department was informed Friday that the department will receive a $160,000 Assistance to Firefighters Grant. The grant is officially for Safety and Operations. The Department will replace 28 of the current air packs currently in use. Under the terms of the grant, the packs that are still usable will be used by other fire departments around the area.

The total cost for the new Air Packs is $168,000, which means the city will have to provide $8,000 in matching funds, which already had been budgeted. The city will pay for the new air packs and will be reimbursed by FEMA.
