“Warren County has a young, but growing Fire and Rescue Department,” said Fire Chief Richard Mabie.  “We depend on grant funds such as these to assist us with important purchases and needs that we could not otherwise afford.  We are extremely grateful for the support that has been shown by the Warren County Board of Supervisors and for the work of Brandy Rosser, the County’s Grants and Special Projects Coordinator in helping us secure the funding.  We look forward to being able to provide enhanced services to the citizens of our community.”

 

Fire and Rescue will also been the recipient of refurbished laptop computers thanks to Fairfax County Fire and Rescue.  With their department planning to replace the five to seven year old computers, Fairfax offered to clean off and make available the equipment to local fire and rescue departments.  Chief Mabie submitted a request for 35 of the laptop, which was approved by Fairfax’s Fire Administration.  Costs associated with the new computers will be minimal and involve program installation and mounting of the equipment in emergency response vehicles.
