Des Plaines Fire Department Receives Illinois American Water Grant
The Des Plaines Fire Department will be purchasing reflective striping tape to apply to emergency response vehicles, thanks to a $1250 grant by Illinois American Water (IAW). The IAW 2012 Firefighter Grant Program provides financial assistance to fire and emergency organizations serving communities in its service areas. Last week IAW Operation Supervisor Tim Morris visited the Des Plaines Fire Department to personally present the check.
