Brewster Fire/Rescue has been awarded $12,943.00 by the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security and the Department of Fire Services through their FY23 Fire Equipment Grant program. This competitive grant award will furnish the department with supplemental funds to purchase software to upgrade portable and mobile radios to ensure they are capable of functioning with new mobile repeaters currently being installed in Brewster. In addition to the software purchase, the grant award will also allow the department to upgrade the current inventory of personal radio speaker mics. These radio upgrades and speaker mic improvements will significantly enhance firefighter safety and the departments’ overall ability to communicate internally and regionally with public safety partners across the Cape. This is Brewster Fire/Rescue’s third grant award through this program, which was established by the Commonwealth in FY21.
Brewster Fire/Rescue would like to thank the Governor’s Office, the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, and the Department of Fire Services for their continued support for the Town of Brewster, and their sustained efforts to improve the working conditions and safety of firefighters across the Commonwealth.
