The City of Park Ridge recieves a $25,000 Grant from the Fireman's Fund Insurance Company
Fire Department Receives Grant
The Park Ridge Fire Department continues to seek alternative sources of funding. Late last year, our Department was contacted by Lemme Insurance Group, an independent agency affiliated with the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company, to learn more about our programs. We shared with them the financial challenges we are faced with in the areas of training and equipment. We are happy to announce that the City of Park Ridge has received a grant from Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company in the amount of $25,000. Fireman's Fund Grants are stipulated by the company, to be used for firefighting equipment, training and safety programs for firefighters. Our Department was selected locally by Lemme Insurance Group to receive this award.These grants are distributed based on areas where the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company has experienced growth in their business. This grant award will be used to purchase much needed self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), a forcible entry simulator critical to our training division, as well as various training adjuncts and materials.
