EIGHT FIRE DEPARTMENTS IN THE THIRD TO SHARE A LITTLE MORE THAN $150,000 FROM PROVINCIAL FUND


Eight fire departments in the Third will receive grants through the province's Emergency Services Provider Fund, which is available to fire departments, ground search and rescue organizations, and hazardous materials teams. "Our volunteer first responders work hard to support their communities, including in recent months as Nova Scotia has faced record-breaking wildfires and flooding," said Premier Tim Houston. "They train and commit to this work outside their other professional and family commitments, and we are grateful for their unwavering dedication. This investment will help support the invaluable work they do." The fund helps organizations with the cost of upgrading equipment used in response to fires or other emergencies, such as rescue, water supply and personal protective equipment. The program provides up to 75 percent of eligible costs, up to a maximum of $20,000 per organization.

The more than $150,000 will be awarded to:

Gabarus Volunteer Fire Department $20,000

Glace Bay Volunteer Fire Department $20,000

Southside Boulanderie Volunteer Fire Department $20,000

Big Bras d’Or Volunteer Fire Department $20,000

Mira Road Volunteer Fire Department $20,000

New Victoria Volunteer Fire Department $18,475

Marion Bridge Volunteer Fire Department $13,006

Sydney Fire Department $20,000
