The Malden Fire Department was awarded a total of $21,691 from the MA Department of Fire Services.
The program allows fire departments to purchase and upgrade a variety of equipment that will make firefighters' jobs safer so they in turn can continue to protect our communities. The grants awarded will fund up to 118 types of equipment, protective gear, up-to-date technology and more.
This fiscal year (FY22), the MA Department of Fire Services will invest a total of $5 million into the program, supporting 306 fire departments across the Commonwealth.
Congratulations and thank you Malden Fire Department and Fire Chief Sullivan for protecting our community on the frontlines every day!
