OFFD Receives FEMA Grant

Oriskany Falls Fire Department announced Friday a grant from FEMA was received.


The department has been awarded $104,000 from the FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program for the purpose of purchasing 24 complete sets of firefighter turnout gear and a heated gear dryer.


This grant will replace the outdated gear many members are using and will provide added protection against cancer-causing particulates.


The heated gear dryer will allow drying multiple sets of wet gear within a few hours, allowing a quick turnaround for their next use.



The full story is in this week's edition of the newspaper.
