Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) supports the SAFER program

Senator Kay R. Hagan (D-NC) has announced that Cowee Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Inc. in Franklin will receive $91,360 from the Department of Homeland Security’s Staffing for Adequate Fire & Emergency Response (SAFER) program, which Hagan has supported in the Senate.

“This is going to be a good tool in keeping our volunteer fire fighters active and trained without the use of taxpayer money,” said Cowee Fire and Rescue Assistant Chief Dustin Pendergrass.

“The courageous first responders at Cowee Volunteer Fire & Rescue help keep Franklin safe everyday,” Hagan said. “In this tough economy, this grant will help the fire department acquire and maintain volunteers, ensuring that there are always firefighters to answer the call and protect the community.”
