More than $700,000 in grant money will help make local firefighters safer while they battle blazes in the city. FEMA grant for over $700K will allow New Britain firefighters to be trained in safety and survival The Federal Emergency Management Agency on Friday presented city officials with a check for $710,156 that will allow every New Britain firefighter to be trained in safety and survival. The money will also be used for bailout kits and an electronic personal accountability system. “We’re so grateful for this,” Mayor Erin Stewart told a FEMA representative outside the safety training tower on Stanley Street. “This is going to go such a long way. An opportunity to supplant city funds for training our fire department is a win for the city.”
