“Wesley Volunteer Fire Department has been in partnership with First Responder Grants and Greg Bavis for roughly three years. During this time, we have been successful with several grants, the highlights being two different Assistance for Firefighters Grants (AFG) in a single year.
“We were awarded funding for a new fire truck as well as battery-powered extrication tools. For a small department with an annual budget of only $15,000 at the time, this was a huge boost!
“The truck has been ordered at the time of this letter and will be the first new truck our department has seen in its nearly fifty years since inception. None of this would have been possible without the assistance obtained from First Responder Grants.”
