CARMEL, N.Y. — The Carmel Fire Department will receive a $203,965 investment for new life-saving equipment through the federal Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program.
The grant money will help replace outdated equipment with the purchase of 38 new breathing apparatuses, a device worn by first responders to provide breathable air in life-threatening conditions. The Carmel Fire Department relies on 50 volunteer members and has served the Carmel community for 99 years.

Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18), who, along with state Senator Greg Ball, helped procure the grant..
