Financial assistance will help an area fire department. Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo announced that the Egg Harbor City Fire Department will receive $12,350 in federal funding from the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) Program. This is the department’s fourth AFG award, receiving previous funding of $93,150 (2003), $78,135 (2006), and $44,221 (2010).
“This is good news for the Egg Harbor City Fire Department whose firefighters tirelessly work to keep the community safe day and night,” said LoBiondo, a member of the Congressional Fire Caucus. “Given the critical need for additional resources of our local first responders, I will continue to strongly support the AFG program.”
In total, 118 organizations in the 2nd Congressional district have been awarded more than $23.8 million since the program began in 2001.
