New Milford FD gets a new water rescue Boat.

Yesterday, the New Milford Fire Department took delivery of a 2023 Sea Ark 1660 MVT 16’ tunnel hull boat for flood and rescue operations. This acquisition came at a zero dollar cost to borough taxpayers thanks to the Department’s aggressive grant writing program. This boat was purchased through a NJ State Legislative Grant supported by state Senator Joe Lagana.

Since 2014 the NMFD’s grant writing program has brought in $2mil dollars for updating aging fire department equipment and apparatus.

Thanks to the Mayor and Councils present and past for their support and assistance with these projects.
