Fire Department rolls out new equipment

October 10, 2017, Canton, MI – This week the Fire Department is completing final training and will begin using their new Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA).  43 new units were purchased with an Assistance to Firefighters Grant awarded to Canton in the amount of $256,182.

SCBA’s are a critical piece of equipment as they provide a steady stream of air allowing firefighters to access smoke-filled buildings for search & rescue and firefighting purposes.  The new SCBA’s meet current National Fire Protection Agency certifications, and include built-in thermal imaging cameras—a significantly enhanced vision feature.  

The Fire Department is continually seeking out grant funding opportunities to replace and upgrade their tools and equipment as needed.
