The Limerick Fire Company and Linfield Fire Company are pleased to announce receipt of a
grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Assistance to
Firefighters Grant (AFG) program to the Limerick Fire Department in the amount of $242,096.
This grant will go toward the replacement of 41 Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)
that are 10 years old and have already been upgraded twice as well as spare air cylinders for each
air pack.

Limerick Fire Company President Tom Walters said, “This SCBA grant is an item that can come
off the Township's Fire Capital Budget and spare a large expense that is normally paid by the
Relief Association”.

The department continually searches out grant opportunities to equip firefighters with state of the
art equipment to serve the residents of Limerick Township.
