Washington Township and the Long Valley Fire Company No. 1, Schooley's Mounain Fire Co. 3, and Fairmount Fire Company No. 1 are excited to report that we were notified today that we were awarded an Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) in the amount of $457,000.00.

This grant will allow the upgrade of all Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) used by all of the township fire departments with modern equipment to keep our firefighters safe. This equipment moderation will benefit the residents of the Townhip and the surrouning communities that our volunteers serve through mutual aid agreements.

We are grateful to past Chief Keith Heimburg for his hard work on preparing the grant and the constant support and assistance from Congressman Leonard Lance. Washington Townshp is lucky to have such a strong representative in Washington as Congressman Lance,who is never afraid to work with others to beneft the residents of the 7th Congressional District.

Always A Firefighter
