CSFD receives $700,000 federal grant for training
Posted on 08/06/2021
The College Station Fire Department has been awarded a $700,320 grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. CSFD will use the funds to train 12 firefighter/EMT’s to become certified paramedics.

“These resources will help our first responders do their jobs more safely and effectively,” Fire Chief Richard Mann said. “Additional paramedic training also enhances our ability to provide mutual aid, not only with an additional medic unit, but with more paramedics on fire apparatus that perform first responder services to the City of Bryan, Texas A&M, and parts of Brazos County.”

The program enhances the safety of the public and firefighters with direct financial assistance for critical training and equipment to eligible fire departments, non-affiliated emergency medical service organizations, and state fire training academies.
