Berne & Westerlo Receive Homeland Security SAFER Grants
Through the Department of Homeland Security's Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response program ("SAFER"), 12 volunteer fire departments in Berne and Westerlo will receive $429,000 over the next two years. Nearly half of that will go to a recuit and retention program with two part-time coordinators marketing and bringing in new members. The rest will go toward fire gear, pagers, and physicals for the firefighters.
