Lincoln Fire Department awarded FEMA grant to replace old equipment

Approval of a $183,238 grant approved for the Lincoln Fire Department by the Federal Emergency Management Agency will aid in replacing strategic equipment for the department.

The grant, which is matched by a 5 percent contribution from the city, actually amounts to a total of $192,400, said Fire Chief Josh Vincent.

“This grant was targeted for fire departments, and it will help up replace hoses and nozzles, anything that our water passes through to fight fires,” he said. “We always want to replace older or outdated equipment to improve our department.”
