Rehoboth Fire Department Gets Grants


The Rehoboth Fire Department has been awarded a $13, 853 grant for the purchase of new safety equipment. The department also received an EMPG (Emergency Management Performance Grant) in the amount of $3500.

“These are getting better,” Chief Frank Barresi told the Board of Selectmen on December 19. ‘The red tape (on the grants) used to be so bad people stopped applying for them.” Barresi explained the money will be used for the purchase of a new “light tower” which will be used during power outages and other emergencies.
