It is my pleasure to announce that the Roberts Park Fire Protection District has applied for, and been awarded, a federal grant to hire additional career firefighter/paramedics. Today, FEMA announced the award in the amount of $569,634 which will defray the costs of three new firefighter/paramedics over a three year period. After the grant period, we will assume the cost of continued employment so that the people we hire today can call Roberts Park their home for the rest of their careers. We look forward to this endeavor and remain committed to enhancing public safety at every opportunity.
