Ithaca, NY- Congressman Tom Reed announced that the City of Ithaca Fire Department has been awarded an Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program operations and safety grant for $22,637.

“Our local fire departments must have the funds necessary to operate safely and efficiently I was happy to provide a letter in support of the City of Ithaca Fire Department to encourage FEMA to distribute this important funding,” Reed said.

The AFG Program is one component in a coordinated effort to strengthen the Nation’s level of preparedness and ability to respond to fire and related hazards. The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administers the grant program.
