Browndale Fire Receives FEMA Grant
Browndale Fire Company will soon be better equipped to keep you and your family safe. Our members and officers have received official notification from FEMA that they have been selected to receive a grant award in the amount of $110,000. This is a competitive grant that all fire departments from across the nation compete for funding in the areas of operations and safety and vehicle acquisition. The grant is part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program awarded through the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The grant committee submitted their application for this grant on September 2014 based on the need for a capital purchase of breathing apparatus to replace obsolete apparatus acquired in 2003. This equipment will allow our firefighters to breathe clean air while in adverse conditions found on many incidents ranging from fires to chemical incidents. These funds will allow our organization to purchase this much needed respiratory protection without using company savings or placing the burden on the communities we serve. Ensuring our volunteers’ safety is a primary concern for our members so that we can make a difference in the lives and property we vow to preserve. With this new safety equipment we will be able to do just that.

Our organization plans to have this new breathing apparatus delivered and in service within the next three months. Please look for additional updates as we work to complete this project to better serve everyone. We thank everyone for their continued support as we look toward the future with a progressive outlook as a prominent fire service organization in Clinton Township, Wayne County, PA.

Accreditation Confered to Browndale Fire
State Fire Commissioner Tim Solobay recently confered that the Browndale Fire Co. No1 has met all the requirements to participate in a program that Commonwealth emergency responders have an opportunity to participate in and be recognized as a certified fire professional at various levels in accordance with nationally recognized and sanctioned Professional Qualification standards. The purpose of this program is to recognize those organizations that support, promote, and encourage their emergency response personnel to voluntarily certify within the Commonwealth’s Certification Program administered by the Office of the State Fire Commissioner. This accreditation is good for a three year period at which time the department must submit paperwork certifying that its membership is still trained to National Professional Qualification Standards.

Of the 2509 Fire Departments across the Commonwealth there are currently 387  organizations recognized under the  What does this mean for our citizens? Well, quite simply, it ensures that firefighters from this department are voluntarily trained above and beyond what is required by the State of Pennsylvania. Their achievements allow them to be trained to National Level Standards that are used as benchmarks of success in the realm of firefighting.

We plan  to continue its participation in this program ensuring that your firefighters are well trained for any circumstance. Please look for additional updates as we work to complete this project to better serve everyone.
