The Beachwood Fire Department is proud to announce that we are one of the recipients of the 2018 Ocean First Foundation Fire Department Grant. The Department used the funds, which were received in December, to purchase 2019 complaint training materials for our CPR/ AED training program.
"A huge THANK YOU to the Ocean First Foundation for once again selecting us as a recipient of their grant. Because of their generosity we are able to purchase much needed, modern CPR mannequins and CPR training materials.This equipment will directly provide critical life saving training to our entire membership” said Captain William Hopson, Training Officer for the Department.
"We greatly appreciate Ocean First's direct investment in local communities such as Beachwood. The training our member will receive will benefit our Department and the citizens we protect everyday” added Captain Hopson. “We are very proud to be a partner with Ocean First and fully support their local community outreach efforts.”
Under the Volunteer Fire Department and First Aid Squad Grant Program, eligible agencies can receive $500 annually. Since the grant's creation in 1997, the Ocean First Foundation has provided over $970,000 all to LOCAL squads and departments. Thank you for selecting us again this year!
We also wish to thank our vendor AED Superstore.com (Allied 100) for their ease of ordering, pricing, great customer service and quick fulfillment of our equipment order.
