Dearborn Press & Guide

Washington, DC, August 29, 2016

U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-12th District) recently announced that the Dearborn Fire Department will receive funding for fire prevention and safety through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.

“Our local firefighters and first responders are on the front lines of keeping our communities safe,” Dingell said. “These grants will help provide the resources they need to continue to protect our families through prevention.”

Dearborn will receive a $168,077 grant to install smoke alarms for houses from Dearborn to Melvindale. The Dearborn Fire Department has already installed 2,000 smoke alarms for residents in the region and they plan to double that number with the funding.

“The smoke alarm installation program will undoubtedly save lives from Dearborn to Melvindale and this grant will ensure this program will continue to move forward and protect our citizens,” Dearborn Fire Chief Joe Murray said.
