The Moonachie and Clifton fire departments were awarded several hundred thousand dollars in federal grants to purchase equipment and protective gear.
Part of Moonachie’s $279,604 grant will help replace equipment destroyed during Superstorm Sandy, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr., said in a news release Wednesday. Clifton’s $348,300 grant will go toward protective gear for 129 fire officers and firefighters.
The funds were dispersed through the federal Assistance to Firefighters Grants. This is Clifton’s fifth such grant in the last decade and brings the city’s total to about $1 million while it’s Moonachie’s first.
