Members of the Sauk City Fire Department will soon able to breath a little easier. The Sauk City Fire Department was awarded a $180,545 federal grant toward the purchase of 28 self-contained breathing apparatus, 56 breathing air cylinders and 40 face masks. Granted through the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant program, the apparatus is a device worn by firefighters and others to provide breathable air in an immediately dangerous to life or health atmosphere, according to Mike Breunig, assistant fire chief. The grant will allow the department to replace its current SCBAs, which are 14 years old.
