Arlington Fire Department Receives Grants to Increase Staffing and Improve Patient Care
 
The City of Arlington Fire Department has been selected to receive another Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) and a Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response (SAFER) grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The grants awarded from FEMA total close to $650,000 and will be used to purchase three power lift cots for EMS and hire three new firefighters.

The power lift cots assist in lifting and lowering patients in and out of the ambulance, making the loading and unloading process less jostling to the patient, minimizing the risk of patient falls, and reducing injuries to firefighters.

The SAFER grant was created to provide funding directly to local fire departments to help increase or maintain the number of trained "front line" firefighters available in their communities. The addition of three firefighters to the Department's team of 27 increases the number of firefighters available to respond to an increasing number of requests for service and improve safety for both firefighters and our citizens. Stated Acting Fire Chief Dave Kraski, "We are honored to have received this competitive grant. This grant along with the support of all those involved in the process is helping to ensure the Arlington Fire Department has the resources to remain a great organization."

Mayor Barb Tolbert said, "This much needed funding will allow the City of Arlington to hire three new firefighters to serve our growing community two years earlier than our available funding would allow."

In addition, the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians has awarded Arlington Fire a $22,000 grant to purchase a Lucas CPR device for one of the department's  medic units. The device is an easy-to-use mechanical chest compression device that provides a consistent chest compression during CPR and will allow medics to continue to provide high-quality chest compressions while a patient is transported to the hospital.
Arlington Police Goes Pink for #BreastCancerAwareness

Starting October 1st, officers at the Arlington Police Department have put down their razors and are letting their facial hair grow in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Arlington Chief Police Jonathan Ventura has waived the department's policy of being clean shaven for any officer that donates money to support breast cancer research.

The fundraiser, known as "Beards for Breast Cancer Awareness" will likely roll into "Movember" as the officers continue their charitab le giving to bring awareness to men's health issues in November.

Additionally, Officers are authorized to wear pink badges through the month of October. These special awareness badges are purchased by the officers individually with a portion of the proceeds from each badge going directly to support breast cancer research.
