Washington, D.C.  – Congressman Dave Loebsack today announced that the Blue Grass Volunteer Fire Department will receive $113,193 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 AFG program allows our first responders to purchase firefighting equipment, implement wellness programs that focus on health, and improve facilities. Funds can be used for a myriad of needs, including new protective equipment, health and safety modifications to stations and training for emergency personnel.
