U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski visited the Rosedale Volunteer Fire Co. today to announce that Baltimore County firefighters will receive $2.3 million in federal grants to help replace aging equipment.

The money will pay for new self-contained breathing apparatus for career and volunteer stations. The current SCBA inventory is 15 years old and at the end of its life cycle.

The money comes through Assistance to Firefighters Grants. AFG helps fire departments and EMS organizations meet firefighting and emergency response needs.

The AFG grant will not cover the entire cost of replacing SCBA; Baltimore County will contribute significantly to the purchase of this essential gear.

Recruitment and Retention

Senator Mikulski also announced a federal SAFER (Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response) grant to Maryland State Firemen’s Association. The $2.3 million grant will be used to help volunteer fire companies recruit and retain well-trained responders.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Fire Chief John Hohman – as well as representatives from the Maryland State and Baltimore County Firemen’s Associations – attended the Rosedale announcement.

The Baltimore County Police Department is now accepting applications for its Community Crime Prevention and Youth Activity Grants Program for fiscal year 2015 (July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015).
