Rep. Lipinski Announces Grant for Oak Lawn Fire Department

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) is announcing that the Oak Lawn Fire Department has been awarded $144,182 through the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.  The Operations and Safety Fire Grant will be used to help purchase protective fire equipment, including 18 new self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBAs) devices and 43 additional face pieces.

“All first responders perform a difficult and dangerous job,” Rep. Lipinski said.  “They put their lives on the line for us each and every day, so I want to do all that I can to fully support their important mission and safety.  This federal assistance will provide equipment that will help these men and women do their best possible job.”

The Assistance to Firefighters Grant program provides needed federal funds to fire departments and emergency medical service organizations in order to improve the response capabilities of our nation's first responders and the safety of our communities.
