On August 5th, Legislator Laura Schaefer and the Nassau County Legislature approved a Community Revitalization Projects (CRPs) for the Jericho Fire District.
The project authorizes the County to enter into an inter-municipal agreement with the Jericho Fire District to purchase protective clothing for the firefighters. The County will provide $85,000 in Capital Funds to the Fire District for the purchase.
Following the vote, Legislator Schaefer provided this comment: “Firefighters put their lives on the line every time they go out on a call and help the residents of Nassau County. This protective clothing will aid the firefighters in their rescue efforts and keep them safe. There is no price we can put on the safety of these brave men and women.”
