Bethlehem Firefighter Secure Grant For Airpacks
While Allentown firefighters struggle to keep vehicles on the road, Bethlehem Mayor Bob Donchez has just announced that his firefighters were just awarded a $284,591 grant. According to Fire Chief Warren Achey, the FEMA grant "will allow the fire department to replace our current air packs that are almost 15 years old with newer state of the art air packs that provide enhanced personal safety and accountability technology.” Mayor Bob Donchez stressed the importance of having the right equipment. “It is important that we continue to update and upgrade equipment for all our first responders so they can protect and keep our residents safe,” he said.
