By providing my fellow firefighters with critical insurance coverage, we stand by our promise to support them and their families
Griffin Fire Rescue
In recent years it has become more evident that firefighters are being exposed to a great deal of contaminants. The City of Griffin was fortunate to be able to use funds from GMA’s Safety & Liability Management Grant Program to purchase a turnout gear extractor to help reduce the contaminates that are in our protective clothing. This has been a huge benefit in implementing a contaminate reduction program to give our firefighters of peace of mind knowing that we are doing what we can to keep them safe.
Smyrna Fire Department
Smyrna Fire Department was able to use funds from GMA’s Safety & Liability Management Grant Program to purchase a second gear washer extractor for our fire department. Having this machine available for use after each fire incident allows us to be proactive in the effort to reduce the risk and exposures to carcinogens.
