SAFER Grant for Piedmont Fire Department

Congressman Mike Rogers announced this week that the department is receiving more than $687,000. The “SAFER Grant” comes from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It will help the department fund recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters. Homeland Security says that the goal is to provide the grants to strengthen the nation’s ability to respond to fires and to improve the country’s overall level of emergency preparedness.
