Firefighters

Since 1986, the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation has been supporting Maine communities. As part of their 2020 grant process, the Foundation awarded fire grants totaling $115,000 to 4 Maine fire departments and First Responder Grants clients and students:

  • Randolph Fire Department, Maine, $40,000 for turnout gear
  • Nobleboro Fire Department, Maine, $20,000 for auto extrication equipment
  • Lebanon Fire Department, Maine, $35,000 for station addition
  • Turner Fire Department, Maine, $20,000 for auto extrication equipment

“Grants are available from generous private citizens and nonprofit organizations too,” says Greg Bavis, Grants Consultant at First Responder Grants. “Public safety agencies are trying to bridge those difficult gaps between their budget and their needs. State-focused programs such as the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation are making it possible for these four Maine fire departments to improve how they protect their communities and their personnel.”

Your department could be next!
