August 27, 2012
More fire trucks and ambulances will be available to help the Guam Fire Department save lives. Recently, the Department of the Interior, through the Office of Insular Affairs’ Compact Impact Program, awarded GFD $1,560,000 to fund these purchases.
“Having more fire trucks and more ambulances on our roads will save more lives–it’s as simple as that,” Acting Governor Ray Tenorio said. “I congratulate Governor Calvo and the men and women of the fire department on this milestone.”
The money will be used to buy two new fire trucks, four new ambulances, and to continue the current lease of four ambulances.
