Stafford Fire Department Receives Federal Grant

STAFFORD –The fire department here has received a $120,000 federal grant that they’ll use to buy 24 air packs and a generator. Rep. Penny Bacchiochi attended an event here recently regarding the event, joining Chief Joe Lorenzetti and Congressman Joe Courtney. The grant money is a shot in the arm for the department whose members have used outdated air packs — a tool essential to their great volunteer efforts. The new air packs will allow firefighters to talk to each other as well as share oxygen.
