The Big News is in!! - Roanoke Fire-EMS Receives Grant Money

Breaking News!!

Roanoke Fire-EMS has received a grant in the amount of $432,820 for Operations and Safety. The grant is from the "Fire Grants" which are the Assistance to Firefighter Grants (AFG). I can only hope that this is the grant money we were hoping to get for the diesel exhaust systems. I will do a little more research and update ASAP.

It is for the exhaust system.

If that is true, kudos to the city and admin. I think thats a worthy investment since the cancer rate for firefighters far exceeds that of "normal" professions.
