Fire department uses fire grants for new radios

The $216,000 in federal grant money will go to the purchase of radios

ENCINITAS, Calif. — For many emergency crews around the country, replacing or upgrading radios has been a slow process due to high costs of the equipment and departments’ budgetary constraints.

Some of that was able to change when FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) began to offer grants that helped pay for much needed equipment for the departments. Through FEMA’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant, the Encinitas Fire Department will be able to upgrade all of their radios, ensuring that all will meet Project 25 requirements.
