Bloomfield Township Fire Department Awarded from Energy Transfer
On August 23rd, the Bloomfield Township Fire Department (BTFD) accepted a grant in the amount of $17250.82 from Energy Transfer. The funds are a part of the company’s First Responder Fund and will be used to purchase five sets of turnout gear for the BTFD.
BTFD Lieutenant Ben Bradford stated, “the purchase of this turnout gear allows us to replace outdated equipment and remain in compliance with federal standards, which is critically important to continue to protect our communities.” He also added that, “turnout gear is only becoming more and more expensive and the grant from Energy Transfer is enormously helpful.”
Energy Transfer’s First Responder Fund serves departments in Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In 2021, the fund donated over $280,000 for the purchase of turnout gear, portable radios and vehicle equipment.
Speaking on behalf of Energy Transfer, Vice President of Public Affairs Joe McGinn stated, “we strive to support first responders in the areas where we operate, through grants for equipment, as well as emergency trainings We are honored to support the Bloomfield Township Fire Department with this grant and to play a part in keeping our community safe and protected.”
