We have BIG news! Chelan County Fire District 3, 6, and Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue received a FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant to replace our aging self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA)! SCBA is expensive but some of the most important protective equipment our firefighters wear. The grant amount is $722,000 and it will help purchase 101 new SCBA units, facepieces, and air cylinders. For the first time ever, Chelan 3, 6, and Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue will have the same SCBA. As we train together, work together, and protect our communities together, having compatible equipment is a very good thing. At the end of the day, this grant means that we will be able to keep our folks safe as they work to protect our communities. We could not be happier to share this news with you.
