Tribe receives fire prevention grant

TRAVERSE CITY — The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians will receive a $71,257 federal grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help increase public safety through fire prevention activities.

U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow announced the grant, which they said in a prepared release will give the department the resources to protect life and property by preventing fires from occurring

The funding comes from the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program that allows fire departments across the country to compete for federal grant money in several categories. The award announced today is from the Fire Prevention and Safety Grant program, which helps local fire departments enhance public safety through activities such as fire prevention education and awareness, code enforcement, and fire and arson investigation.
