New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Grant Award
The Hancock Fire Department is pleased to announce that our organization has received a grant, in the amount of $1,500, from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. This grant will help us purchase 7 sets of forest fire personal protective equipment.
With this grant, we will buy new forest fire personal protective equipment to keep our members safe while they are fighting a forest fire. Our agency responds to many brush, grass and forest fires every year. Many of these fires can be difficult to subdue due to the steep and rugged terrain of the Catskill mountains.
This grant was made possible by the Federal Volunteer Fire Assistance Grant Program.
