Wildwood Fire Company No. 1 Assists the Fire Department Purchase New
Apparatus and Equipment
September, 2017

The City of Wildwood has recently taken delivery of a new $ 491,000 Pierce fire apparatus with 4x4 capabilities funded entirely by the Federal Emergency Management Agency – Assistance to Firefighter Grant (AFG) program and assisted by the Wildwood Fire Company # 1.  FEMA provided $ 464,762 with Wildwood Fire Company # 1 paying the remaining balance of $ 26,563.29 for a total of $ 491,325.29.

This apparatus allows the fire department to access the eastside of the boardwalk onto the beach for fire, medical and water rescue emergencies.

In additional to assisting with the funding of our new fire apparatus, Wildwood Fire Company # 1 also assisted the city in purchasing a new 500 gallon per minute skid-pumping unit, at a cost of over $ 24,000, which was placed onto a 5-ton Army surplus vehicle specifically for dealing with fire emergencies during flooding situations.  The new fire apparatus replaced two older pieces of fire equipment (1969 Mack and 1984 Mack) which often was used during storms. 

Without the contribution of the Wildwood Fire Company # 1 these purchases would not have been made possible.  Between both purchases, along with miscellaneous items, Wildwood Fire Company has donated over $ 65,000 back to the City of Wildwood for firefighting apparatus and equipment.

A sincere THANK YOU to Wildwood Fire Company # 1 for your continuing support of the City of Wildwood Fire Department.
