Assistance to Firefighters Grant Award
Auburn Hills, MI —August 31, 2022— The Auburn Hills Fire Department has been awarded an Assistance to Firefighters Grant in the amount of $87,000. The grant is sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and allows fire departments to request federal funds to replace old or outdated equipment to meet the needs of their communities.

The Auburn Hills Fire Department sponsored the regional grant that includes a total of four departments. The agencies participating in the grant are Auburn Hills Fire Department, Brandon Township Fire Department, Village of Holly Fire Department, and Farmington Public Safety. The funds provided by the grant will allow the departments to replace over 130 aging fire nozzles with current high flow, water conserving nozzles that will allow them to fight fires in a safer more effective manner while reducing water damage to the structure. A project of this scope would not have been possible without the support of federal resources.

Support for the regional grant application was provided by Senator Gary Peters in a letter submitted to FEMA underscoring the importance of the grant award to the participating fire departments and their communities.
