Fire Department Secures Grant

 

To ensure the health and safety of its personnel, the City of Santa Maria Fire Department applied for and was awarded funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s 2022 Assistance for Firefighters Grant for the purpose of conducting wellness physicals.

 

This process was highly competitive and included applications from agencies throughout the United States. The City was awarded $70,909 to conduct baseline physicals and will be scheduled in the next few months. These physicals will be used to develop individualized health and wellness programs for its participants. Research has determined that these programs enhance safety, reduce injuries, and allow firefighters to better serve the public.

 

Questions may be directed to the Fire Department administrative office, (805) 925-0951 extension 2255.
