Warner & Kaine Announce More Than $149,000 For Fries Fire Department

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine announced $149,405 in federal funding for the Fries Fire Department through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Assistant to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program. 

“This federal funding will provide Fries Fire Department with necessary support to enhance operations and ensure the Department has the tools it needs to carry out daily operations and keep the community safe,” the Senators said.

The primary goal of FEMA’s AFG program is to enhance the safety of the public and firefighters by providing direct financial assistance to eligible fire departments, nonaffiliated Emergency Medical Services organizations, and State Fire Training Academies for critically-needed resources.
