Salisbury Fire Dept. Receives $200,000 For New Equipment

Posted: Updated:

 

SALISBURY, Md. - More than $200,000 of federal grant money is going to the Salisbury Fire Department. 

The money will be used to purchase 55 digital portable radios which would replace the old and outdated analog system. We're told the new one have longer battery life, improved clarity of talk, and will increase the department's efficiency when responding to emergencies. 

"This is a great occasion for us. It enables us to take a capital project that otherwise would be wholly funded by our taxpayers and offset that," Salisbury Fire Chief Rick Hoppes said. 

These new radios will also be intrinsically safe, which means it allows operators to take them into an explosive or hazardous atmosphere.
