Ohio fire department receives $1M SAFER grant

The Piqua Daily Call
PIQUA, Ohio — The Piqua Fire Department has received a more than $1 million federal grant that will provide additional staffing to the department, which has been under-manned for several years.
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) announced the $1,034,028 grant last week. He said the grant will assist the Piqua Fire Department with staffing. The grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency SAFER grant program.
"Firefighters put their lives on the line each day to keep our communities safe," Brown said. "These new federal resources will help ensure that Piqua has the skilled responders needed. With so many communities already facing budget shortfalls, critical federal efforts like SAFER are pivotal in keeping our Ohio cities, towns and villages safe."
