Fire Department Receives SAFER Grant
Posted on 09/30/2019
The Cape Girardeau Fire Department received a Staffing For Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant from the Department of Homeland Security.

The grant allows the Department to hire one more firefighter per shift (three new hires) and covers a large portion of the firefighters' salary and benefits over the next three years.

The grant adds much-needed staffing for firefighter safety, and could have positive effects on lower insurance rates in our community.
