Patch for Third District

Third District received a $638,000 Federal Assistance to Firefighters Regional Grant

In August of 2021, Third District received a $638,000 Federal Assistance to Firefighters Regional Grant. This grant was to replace aging self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) for Third District, Cornwells, Newportville, Bristol Consolidated, and Bristol Fire Co.

The SCBA was recently delivered and on Wednesday evening, our crew was trained on all of the new features that the new equipment now has.

The new SCBA will allow firefighters to work in toxic and hazardous atmospheres that they encounter on a daily basis as we provide fire protection to our community.
