Posted 2/13/12

WASHINGTON – Rhode Island Sens. Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse and Reps. James Langevin and David Cicilline last week jointly announced more than $374,000 in grants for the Warwick, Harrisville and Cranston fire departments.

According to a news release, the federal funds were awarded through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighter Grants program, which looks to upgrade department communication systems and provide important equipment upgrades to firefighters.

According to the news release:

• The Warwick Fire Department will receive $193,898 in radio communications-equipment upgrades to keep first responders in close contact throughout any local, regional or statewide emergency through the statewide 800 MHz radio system. The department will use the federal funds to pay for command-and-rescue vehicle radios, fixed and vehicular repeater systems, portable and base-station radios and a communications recorder.

• The Harrisville Fire Department will receive $102,600 to upgrade Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus units as well as thermal-imaging cameras used to quickly reach fire victims.

• The Cranston Fire Department will receive $77,920 to install infrastructure upgrades, including fire-alarm systems. •
