Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that the Davenport Fire Department will receive a total of $611,727 for recruitment purposes. The funding comes from the Department of Homeland Security’s Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program.
“Ensuring our local fire departments have the proper staff to protect our homes, businesses and communities is very important,” said Loebsack. “I congratulate the Davenport Fire Department on receiving this competitive grant. This funding will ensure they have the proper staffing to continue to safely serve the people of Davenport.”
The SAFER program is designed to strengthen the nation’s ability to respond to fire and fire-related hazards and improve the nation’s overall level of preparedness by supporting the hiring of firefighters and the recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters.###
