AMHERST: The Amherst Fire Department has received funding from the Emergency Services Providers Fund of Nova Scotia.
A letter from the ESPF said, "Enclosed is a cheque in the amount of $12,815.00 for the one time ESPF funding."
The funding was made available so the Springhill Fire Department can upgrade its fire fighting equipment.
"The Department is pleased to have been able to support this worthy project," the ESPF's Marvin MacDonald said.
The Chief of the Springhill Fire Department Fred Arsenault said the money will be used to help purchase a new set of Jaws of Life and to upgrade the departments communications system.
