Greenwood Fire Co. awarded $218,000 federal grant

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A Federal Emergency Managements Administration (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) totaling nearly $218,000 has been awarded to the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Company.

The primary goal of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) is to meet the firefighting and emergency response needs of fire departments and non-affiliated emergency medical service organizations, according to officials.

Since 2001, AFG has helped firefighters and other first responders obtain critically needed equipment, protective gear, emergency vehicles, training and other resources necessary for protecting the public and emergency personnel from fire and related hazards.

The Greenwood Volunteer Fire Company has served the Greenwood community since 1923 with fire protection and medical assistance services.
