In April 2013 The Fort Washington Fire Company was awarded a $67,020 FEMA grant through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program for the purchase of 27 complete sets of structural firefighter gear (helmets, coats, pants, gloves, hoods, goggles).

We have recently taken delivery of the aforementioned gear and would like to thank our U.S. Representatives and Township Officials for their support.  On Tuesday, November 26, 2013, US Representative Allyson Schwartz along with Upper Dublin Township Commissioners and officials were thanked by the members of the FWFC for their support as they displayed the new gear received by the grant.
