East Longmeadow Fire Receives Grant to Replace Equipment


EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WGGB) — In East Longmeadow, the fire department is receiving federal grant money to replace their old bottle compressor.

The device used to fill the air bottles toted around on firefighters’ backs.

The 23-year-old compressor has been out of service for a few months and fire officials hope to have the new one up and ready very soon.

Fire Chief Paul Morrissette says these grants help to protect citizens as well as firefighters
