Senators Peters, Stabenow Announce Support for Cheboygan Life Support Systems Inc.
WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow today announced $159,773 for the Cheboygan Life Support Systems Inc. This grant comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Assistance to Firefighters Grants program and will equip ambulances with a power-load cot system to further assist first responders in the line of duty.
"Our first responders work hard to keep us safe every day, we owe it to them to make sure they are kept safe on the job as well" said Senator Peters. "I'm pleased to announce this grant that will help provide Cheboygan first responders with the equipment and supplies they need to continue protecting and serving our communities every day."
“Our first responders in Cheboygan put their lives on the line to protect our families and homes,” said Senator Stabenow. “Thanks to these new resources, these brave men and women will have the equipment they need to help them do their jobs more safely and effectively.”
Eligible fire departments and Emergency Medical Services organizations in Michigan and across the country can apply for Assistance to Firefighters Grants. These competitive grants help first responders purchase the equipment and obtain the training needed to handle fire-related hazards.
