A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator to Execute on Behalf of Fauquier County a Grant Application to the Virginia Department of Fire Programs


Topic Description:

The Fire Rescue Training Division has a long standing reputation across the State for providing extensive amounts of fire and emergency medical service training, especially to Fauquier County's high school programs.  For the past six years the County's structural fire training has been limited by the lack of availability to a fire training building as the old one-level building has been condemned. The change in construction and types of buildings more than ever demands a better facility to be able to prepare firefighters to safely function in these buildings during actual fires. Having identified a site for a new fire training building, the County can now apply for funding from the Virginia Department of Fire Programs to assist in constructing this building. The grant application requires authorization from the Board of Supervisors and a designated grant agent.
