Grant helps Lacey firefighters

April 11th, 2017 by Ken

The Lacey Fire District has received a $21,600 grant to purchase protective clothing that fire fighters must wear when they enter a burning structure.

The grant came from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation.

According to Fire Chief Steve Brooks, safety equipment wears out due to age as well as damage and excessive wear.   Several pieces of safety equipment had already been pulled out of service.

“Having this gear is critical and essential for us to deliver fire fighting services,” Brooks said.  “This generous grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation helps us meet our Mission of Service With Excellence.”
