Federal officials say the funding comes from the Assistance to Firefighters grant program through the Department of Homeland Security.

In a statement contained in a news release, Norwich fire chief Tracey Chawgo said the equipment is important because firefighters live at the station during their 24-hour shifts.

Chawgo said the station is regularly used by residents. He also said there is a potential for Norwich City offices to move into the fire station building.

The federal grants are awarded on a competitive basis to departments that address the program’s priorities and demonstrate a financial need.
