Westport Getting $265,000 for Fire HQ Generator

Westport will receive $265,000 from the Fiscal Year 2010 Homeland Security Appropriations bill to replace an aging generator at fire headquarters, Connecticut’s congressional delegation announced.

The legislation will now go to the President Obama for his signature. The money was included in appropriation requests submitted by Congressman Jim Himes of the 4th District earlier this year.

Fire Headquarters houses Westport’s Emergency Operations Center as well as units from the Fairfield County Hazardous Materials Response Team and the Regional Communications and Command Response Unit.

The department sought funds to replace an aging generator responsible for supplying emergency standby power for headquarters.
