  • Over $375,000 in grants to Sorrento and Corinth Fire Departments

    The Sorrento Fire Department and the Corinth Fire Department will collectively receive more than $375,000 for new fire trucks through FEMA’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant program. Sorrento will be awarded $232,750 for a new tanker truck, used for transporting large amounts of water to emergencies, while Corinth’s grant of $142,500 will fund a new pumper truck—equipped to project water onto burning buildings.

    “This funding will ensure that the Sorrento and Corinth fire departments have the vehicles they need to respond to emergencies efficiently, effectively, and safely,” said Congressman Mike Michaud.  “Supporting Maine’s firefighters means providing them with first-rate equipment, and these grants from FEMA will help them to best protect our communities.”
