Lipinski Announces Grant for Pleasantview Fire Protection District
Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) is announcing that the Pleasantview Fire Protection District has been awarded a grant through the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. Pleasantview, which covers Burr Ridge, Countryside, Hodgkins, Indian Head Park, La Grange Highlands, Willowbrook, and portions of unincorporated Cook and DuPage counties, has been awarded $100,000 for three power load systems for their three ambulances and one power assist stretcher.
“Federal funding is needed to meet the increased demands being placed on our nation's first responders,” 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 the 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.
