Congressman Frank Pallone Visits Fire & Safety Services


On August 15, 2019, Congressman Frank Pallone and his District Director, Matt Montekio, visited Fire & Safety Services. During their visit, the Congressman toured the offices and shop and discussed the difficulty in finding qualified technicians to do fabrication and service work. This topic was further discussed later on as a critical issue not just for the fire service, but for the heavy-duty trucking industry at large.

In addition, AFG and SAFER grant funding was also discussed at length with the Congressman agreeing that flat funding, while beneficial, is still slipping behind in the cost of goods increases the equipment has encountered over the last few years.

Other local issues were discussed prior to the Congressman having to leave for his next appointment.
