Department Wins Federal Grant

On December 27, 2012, the Beaver Dam Fire Department was notified that we won a federal grant from the FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant program.  The grant is to retrofit a fire sprinkler system in the fire station and adjoining city hall in the amount of $110,000.  When the building was built in 1960, sprinkler systems were not required.  Today, all commercial and public structures of a similar size can not be built without a sprinkler system.  Nationwide, there are about 150 fires per year in fire stations that damage the community's ability to respond to emergencies.  The upgrade will help protect the lives of our emergency workers and the communities investment in life saving equipment.
