Saline, Ann Arbor Township firefighters to get new gear thanks to grant
Thanks to grants from the federal government, Saline firefighters will soon be outfitted with new gear, and Ann Arbor Township will get new nozzles for all of its fire trucks.
The money means a lot to a department the size of Saline’s, Hoeft said. Much of the department’s current gear is aging, so the new gear is sorely needed, he said.
“The standards change so much, so it’s nice to start fresh.”
Ann Arbor Township’s FEMA grant totaled $21,318. Both departments had to come up with a small amount of matching money to go along with the grants.
