Guam - The Guam Fire Department received more than $14,000 worth of hoses and forcible entry tools today. Guam Fire Department spokesperson Joey San Nicolas says the equipment was purchased using the Department of the Interior grant funding. "This is part of the bigger order some came earlier this year and some are coming within the next six months so as we continue to address our equipment needs, we'll be receiving more equipment just like this," he said.
The fire department has spent more than $100,000 in grant money so far and will also be purchasing forestry hoses and other equipment necessary for firefighters.
