The Lisbon Volunteer Fire Company has been awarded a BGE First Responder Safety Grant for 2018. The grant will allow our Company to purchase a set of 51 ton high pressure lifting bags. This generous award allows us the means to upgrade our rescue capabilities for handling large truck and passenger bus emergencies on Interstate 70 as well as railway incidents in the Woodbine and Mt. Airy areas.
BGE’s Emergency Response and Safety Grant program, now in its eighth year, is an integral part of BGE’s continued commitment to supporting safety and reliability while also enhancing the communities it serves. It supports nonprofit emergency response and public safety organizations by providing funding that is vital to their success. To date, BGE has provided over $1 million to 194 emergency response organizations, who share BGE’s commitment to the safety of central Maryland residents.
