Colerain fire department gets grant from FEMA

October 4, 2016 by  

The Colerain Township board of trustees recently held a special meeting to vote on an important issue.

The board convened on September 28 to vote on the acceptance of grant from FEMA that would permit the township to hire two more fire inspectors.

The grant comes to the fire and emergency medical services department from FEMA’s Fire Prevention Grant Program. It totals $93,000.

The FEMA grant program is part of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program, the goal of which is to provide support to projects that improve public safety and that protect firefighters from the hazards connected with fire prevention. The grants also aim to minimize injury and to offer more protections to populations that are considered high-risk.

Township officials regularly use posters to alert residents and businesses to the dangers of caused by fire. Hiring two new inspectors will allow the fire department to protect residents even more fully.

The new inspectors will organize two programs. The Smoke Alarm Installation Program will focus on neighborhoods considered “at risk” and will make sure homes and apartments have functioning smoke alarms. During a “smoke alarm blitz” at an apartment complex in July, the fire department installed new alarms in 102 out of 129 apartments and changed the batteries in alarms in 30 additional residences. The next blitz is scheduled for this Saturday, October 8, in a mobile home complex.
