The City of Murrieta was selected to receive a $2,012,193 grant from the Department of Homeland Security’s Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program, announced Congressman Ken Calvert. The grant will allow the Murrieta Fire Department to increase the number of frontline firefighters in the department.
“I am thrilled Murrieta was selected to receive a SAFER grant and will be able to put these resources to use by increasing the capabilities of the Murrieta Fire Department,” said Calvert. “As an Appropriations Committee member, I have supported funding for the SAFER program because we must ensure our communities are safe and protected. I’m grateful that the Department of Homeland Security found merit in Murrieta’s grant application and will provide critical funding to the city.”
Murrieta Mayor Gene Wunderlich said the grant will enable the city to move ahead with efforts delayed by COVID, like stating another medic patrol and other measures that help keep residents safe. “Congratulations to the hard-working members of Murrieta Fire & Rescue on receiving this SAFER Grant,” said Mayor Wunderlich.
