Fire Department Receives Grant
August 31, 2010
The TN Dept of Agriculture, Division of Forestry, recently awarded the City of Waverly Fire Department a grant under its Volunteer Fire Assistance Grant Program. The $3,000 matching grant will be used to purchase woodland firefighting equipment. Planned purchases include a generator and high intensity scene lighting, as well as flashlights and a backpack blower to assist with fighting brush fires.
The equipment will be in service within the next 30 days and will greatly enhance the department’s response to woodland and brush fires.
