Sandy Springs to Improve Fire Stations

Great news for Sandy Springs fire stations 1 and 2 as they are set for some safety improvements. The city’s fire rescue service has received the Assistance to Firefighters Grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and they have decided to use the money by installing sprinkler systems in these two stations. Now the city’s firefighters will be better protected at work, allowing them to perform their duties with peace of mind.  The award period of this grant is February 18, 2011 to February 17, 2012, with approved amounts of $49,500 for station 1 and $60,500 for station 2.

A program of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, grants are awarded to fire departments to enhance their ability to protect the public and fire service personnel from fire and related hazards. Three types of grants are available: Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG), Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Grants (SAFER) and Fire Prevention and Safety Grants (FP&S).
