Congratulations to Canton Township Fire Department and Warrensville Heights Fire Department on being awarded SAFER Grants for much needed funds.

Canton Township was awarded approxiately $250,000 to fill 3 full time positions. This was much needed for the department to become compliant with current NFPA standards on having four men on scene on initial arriving fire apparatus.

Warrensville Heights Fire Department had to lay off 6 full time firefighters due to budget constraints.  Thanks to the AFG SAFER grant, all 6 of these full time firefighters have their jobs back. The grant was for approximately $1.4 Million dollars.

Congratulations to these departments and all the other departments that were awarded SAFER Grants that much needed them.
