CDBG funding is being provided to the Brockton Fire Department, for the purchase of a new fire truck. The proposed fire truck is a 1,500 gallon per minute pumping engine. The truck will operate out of Station 1 or 2, both of which are located in the low- and moderate-income areas of the city (Census Tracts 5109 and 5116 respectively). The Fire Department is the busiest per capita in Massachusetts and the fire truck and will be a welcomed addition to the Department’s response capability.
