The fire company received a grant through FEMA to purchase the gear and air cylinders.

It was like Christmas morning Monday evening at the Sacramento Community Fire Company, as firefighters were coming in to un-package and try on their new turn-out gear.
The fire company was awarded a grant for more than $95,000 from the Assistant to Firefighters through the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA).
Sacramento Community Fire Company Fire Chief Ron Radel wrote the grant more than a year ago and he said the company received notification this past fall that they were going to receive the money.
“We haven’t had new turn-out gear since 2004,” said Radel. “We were able to purchase 27 complete sets of gear.”
