U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced that the Yulan Fire Department will receive $34,913 to purchase turnout gear. “With this funding, first responders in Yulan can focus on their important work knowing they have reliable new gear,” said Schumer. “This investment will help ensure that our local heroes from Yulan have the gear that will enable them to respond as effectively and safely as possible.”
“This is an important investment for the Yulan Fire Department,” Senator Gillibrand said. “It’s our responsibility to ensure our first responders have the most up-to-date equipment to serve our communities. The new gear will help the fire department respond to emergencies more efficiently and effectively, and help save more lives.”
“The Yulan Fire Depart is very happy and pleased that we were selected by Federal Emergency Management Agency for this award,” said Philip Johnson, treasurer of the Yulan Fire Department.
