WHEATLAND — The Wheatland Volunteer Fire Department received a $1,000 grant from AAA on June 27.
After applying in February, the fire department was selected for the AAA Endowment for Prepared Youth Programs grant.
As stated in the congratulations letter, “the department’s dedication to teaching children and youth life-saving skills about fire, emergency and traffic safety is inspiring.”
In October, the fire department does a week of activities at local schools to teach children how to stay safe in a fire and how to prevent them. The awarded $1,000 will be going to help with fire prevention.
