The Brevard Fire Department has received the 2016 Assistance to Firefighters grant award administered by FEMA for $265,715 toward the purchase of 45 Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) units and five Accountability Systems. This funding will allow the firefighters to have safe portable breathing air units to use when working in structure fires, car fires or when responding to an IDLH environment. These units will have an accountability system that will help the incident commander locate a downed firefighter from outside of the structure.
