“This grant affords the SPVFD the opportunity to relieve the taxpayers of the Sun Prairie Fire District with more than $11,000.00, while still receiving state-of-the-art equipment to assist in life-saving measures. We appreciate this grant award and the partnership with Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation,” said Fire Chief Joe Seltzner.
