WARREN — U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Howland, D-13th, today announced a $2,389,845 award to the Warren Fire Department from the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.
“This is great news for the firefighters working to protect the Warren community,” Ryan said in a news release. “The safety of our firefighters and first responders cannot be underestimated when every day they put their lives on the line for us. Federal grants are an important source of funding that ensure that local fire departments can provide the resources and hiring needed to keep their communities safe.”
"The city is extremely grateful for the opportunity to bring the fire department up to adequate staffing levels," said Mayor Doug Franklin. "This grant is very significant to the city's ability to protect life and property in the community. I greatly appreciate the support from Congressman Tim Ryan and our elected federal officials."
