Grant Saves Caroline Fire, Rescue Jobs

by Deirdre Blake posted Aug 27 2012 10:26AM
More than $600,000 in federal money awarded to Caroline County saves five career fire and rescue positions that were in jeopardy. 
Chief Jason Loftus says they are grateful for the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response grant to fund the positions for the next two years. The previous grant money would have run out in September and could not be picked up in the 2013 county budget.
The saved positions will maintain daytime service at stations in Upper Caroline, Ladysmith and Bowling Green.
This is the third time in recent years that Caroline has received such a grant, but it is the first Virginia locality to get the money in this grant period.
