Washington, D.C.  – Congressman Dave Loebsack today announced that the Davenport Fire Department will receive $68,000 in funding from the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) Program.

“Our firefighters and first responders stand ready to serve us the moment disaster strikes,” said Loebsack.  “This funding will ensure that they are able to secure the resources and training they need to respond quickly to emergencies and keep our families and communities safe.”

The Fire Prevention and Safety (FP&S) Grants are part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) and support projects that enhance the safety of the public and firefighters from fire and related hazards. The primary goal is to reduce injury and prevent death among high-risk populations.
