Congressman Adam Smith (D-Tacoma) is pleased to announce that the SeaTac City Fire Department received a federal grant totaling $136,665. This grant money will be used to improve the department’s technology and will also allow the department to purchase a GPS tracking system that will be used to track firefighters during an incident. This is the second year in a row that the SeaTac City Fire Department was awarded funds to improve their technology.
“This money is critical to improving the safety conditions of our firefighters,” said Smith. “The GPS tracking system and other technology upgrades will greatly enhance firefighter safety and effectiveness.”
