$530,437 that will be used for a new home for the Warwick Fire Operations Center (FOC) is one of six government funding bills approved last week according to the office of Congressman Seth Magaziner. While the funding still has a few hoops to jump through, James Kwon, Representative Seth Magaziner’s communications director, said that the congressman successfully got the grant through as part of the package, which was signed by President Joe Biden, averting a government shutdown. The current Fire Operations Center, a small square brick building which has been in use for 70 years, is located on Sandy Lane near the Department of Public Works. “This is a tremendous fit for the city- this has been one of the things on our to-do list for a long time,” Fire Chief Peter McMichael said.
