Today, Rep. Tom Reed announced a $70,107.62 grant to provide the Children’s Safety Village in Chautauqua County with funding to enrich their fire safety education program. The grant will be used to provide programming to teach youth how to react to a fire and other related issues.
“We care about ensuring the safety our children from the dangers of fire and make sure they know how to respond to these types of emergencies,” Tom said. “This grant also provides funding to help keep our constituents safe and informed. We will continue to support fire safety education and similar programs that keep our constituents safe.”
“The Children’s Safety Village feels so fortunate to be the recipients of a Fire Prevention and Safety Award from FEMA,” said Jessica Dayton, Children’s Safety Village executive director. “These funds are crucial to our programming and will be used to teach children how to react in a fire emergency, to teach CPR to the community and will provide free smoke alarms and installations to those who need them. This grant will help us further our mission of reducing the number of unintentional injuries and unfortunate fatalities within our County.”
