"Our first responders put their lives on the line every day across Ohio," said Brown. "These funds ensure that Ohio firefighters have the resources they need to perform their jobs safely."
AFG grants target fire departments and EMS organizations that are unaffiliated with hospitals to enhance their ability to protect the health and safety of the public and first-responder personnel.
The funds can be used for vehicle acquisition as well as operational and safety equipment updates. The chart below details Ohio grant recipients and amounts.

According to FEMA, the Assistance to Firefighter Grants are used to help firefighters and other first responders obtain critically needed equipment, protective gear, emergency vehicles, training, and other resources needed to protect public and emergency personnel from fire and related hazards. Since 2001, nearly $4 billion in grant money has been awarded to first responder organizations.
