Sutter County Secures FEMA Grant for Lifesaving Firefighter Equipment

Sutter County Secures FEMA Grant for Lifesaving Firefighter Equipment

Firefighters in Sutter County will get updated, lifesaving breathing apparatus as the result of a federal grant award of $486,853.

Sutter County Fire Department Fire Services Manager Dan Yager said the grant will fund the purchase of firefighter Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) to replace equipment that, in most cases, is 20 years old and out of compliance with federal fire protection standards. Rapid Intervention Team packs that contain additional air and other equipment for rescuing those trapped in a fire, will also be purchased.

The equipment will go to four fire departments; Sutter County Fire Department, East Nicolaus Fire Department, Meridian Fire Protection District, and Pleasant Grove Fire Department.

The County sought a total grant award of $685,900 to replace all 109 breathing apparatus currently in use; the reduced award will still allow for the replacement of the oldest of the equipment. The fire departments must come up with a 10 percent match of funds, $48,685, as their share of cost.

The grant application was prepared by the Sutter County Fire Department and approved by the Board of Supervisors in May of 2013. The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced the Federal Assistance to Firefighters grant Friday.
