Supervisors also accepted the certification and training of volunteers and fire police members for 2011

The jobs of the men and women of the Fire Department of Montgomery Township got a little boost recently by supervisors.

The Fire Department of Montgomery Township has received new funding in order to purchase emergency equipment, and it has also notified supervisors that all volunteer firefighters and fire police members are trained and certified for 2011.

At a recent supervisors meeting, supervisors accepted information on certification and training of department personnel.

Director of Fire Services Bill Brightcliffe said per the Fire Services Agreement with the township, the fire department annually submits a letter from the fire chief to certify to the board that the volunteers and fire police members responding to calls for emergency assistance have received proper training and certifications.

“We thank you for your continued help and support,” fire Chief Christopher Mann told the supervisors.

Furthermore, a Pennsylvania 2010 Volunteer Fire Company Grant was approved  by supervisors for the Fire Department of Montgomery Township.

“The department requested the board of supervisors accept $6,249 in funding received through the Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioners, Volunteer Fire Company – Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant,” Brightcliffe said.

“It will be used to purchase equipment for emergency operations enhancement,” he said.
