New Wildfire Safety Funding
Piercy Fire Protection District has been awarded $20,000 for the purchase of specialized equipment.
The California Fire Foundation (CFF), with support from The PG&E Corporation Foundation (The PG&E Foundation), has awarded wildfire safety grants to 19 local fire departments, fire agencies and community groups in PG&E’s North Coast Region, including Bridgeville Volunteer Fire Department and Cultural Fire Management Council. This is the sixth year these grants have been awarded to help communities bolster their disaster preparedness and response programs.
The wildfire safety grants — totaling $730,000 this year — have been distributed to agencies in high wildfire-risk areas with the goal of strengthening their disaster readiness and response. The grants announcement comes during National Preparedness Month, observed each September to raise awareness of the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that can happen at any time.
