Bridgewater Fire Department Wins $10,000 Grant!

In the Fall of 2011, communities rallied to showcase their fire safety smarts.  Through Liberty Mutual's Be Fire Smart program, the Town of Bridgewater's Fire Department has won a $10,000.00 grant!

To promote the Be Fire Smart Fire Safety Pledge Program in their community, the Bridgewater Fire Department used many resources including the local cable network and local newspapers. The Bridgewater Fire Department plans to use the grant money to purchase rescue equipment for their new fire engine.

Chief George Rogers, had this to say, "It is amazing what this community can accomplish when it sticks together."

According to Liberty Mutual Sales Representative Andrew Corndell, "We wanted to market the program in the community as much as possible. We teamed up with Bridgewater State University and the regional school district to help us promote the grant."
