Nationally, the fiscal year (FY) 2007 AFG awards, which will be distributed in phases, will ultimately provide over $490 million to fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency medical service organizations throughout the country.
“Since 2001, President Bush and Congress have made an investment of over $3 billion dollars so that thousands of fire departments can be prepared for all emergencies in their communities,” said U.S Fire Administrator Greg Cade. “September is National Preparedness Month, and I would like to encourage all residents of this nation to join with their firefighters in preparing their families and businesses for all hazards, great and small. I invite this nation to join with the fire service and have a 72 hour preparedness plan. For more information visit www.ready.gov or www.fema.dhs.gov.”
