Hillsboro Fire Receives another Federal Grant
The Hillsboro Fire Protection District is excited to announce the receipt of another Federal Assistance to Firefighters Grant for a new Breathing Air System. The system is what we use to fill our self contained breathing apparatus that supplies us with fresh air in various smoke and hazardous environments. The new system includes a breathing air compressor, cascade system to fill the SCBA's and a explosion proof enclosure to fill SCBA bottles. The total award amount of the grant is $49,679. The District will contribute 5% of that or $2,365.00 with the Federal Government picking up the remaining $47,314.00!
So far for the FY2016 we have received a total of $157,679.00 of Federal Grant Funding with the district contributing 5% of that or $7,883.95!
