Ringing Hill, together with Companies 37 and 58, has received a regional grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program. The grant, totaling $80,409.49, was awarded to enhance the fire departments' capabilities through the acquisition of new thermal imaging cameras (TICs).

The FEMA AFG grant provides Ringing Hill, along with Companies 37 and 58, the opportunity to upgrade their firefighting equipment and improve their operational efficiency. The grant's allocation of funds for the purchase of new TICs enables the fire departments to enhance their ability to detect and navigate through hazardous environments, ultimately promoting firefighter safety and effectiveness.

The new thermal imaging cameras replace the antiquated TICs previously in use by Ringing Hill and its partnering companies. The updated technology offers advanced features and capabilities, enabling firefighters to better assess and respond to critical situations. By utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, the fire departments aim to enhance their overall emergency response and provide enhanced safety measures for both firefighters and the community they serve.

The regional collaboration among Ringing Hill, Companies 37, and 58 showcases the commitment to improve emergency services in the area. Through the successful acquisition of the FEMA AFG grant, these fire departments have taken a significant step towards ensuring the safety and well-being of their personnel and the communities they protect.
