Jasper County Emergency Services District (ESD) #4 purchased new equipment from FEMA Grant received last year

Jasper County Emergency Services District # 4 was awarded an Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) from FEMA in early 2023 to purchase new Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). The grant award was for $442,000 and had to be matched by an additional $113,000 of local monies, provided by JCESD 4.


Tonight all 5 VFD’s operating within JCESD 4 have received the following:


Angelina River Fire And Rescue

12 MSA G1 SCBA’s

24 - 45 minute cylinders

20 masks

6 spare batteries

1 battery charger


Beech Grove VFD, Jasper TX

MSA Fire G1 was chosen by a committee of representatives from all 5 VFD’s. The purchase was made from the MSA distributor for our our region, Casco Industries, Inc., represented by Raymond Murray.


In total, the grant funded the following:

60 MSA G1 SCBA’s

120 45 minute cylinders

100 masks

30 spare batteries

6 battery chargers

Total purchase price of $556,000.


This purchase WOULD NOT have happened without grant assistance and the commitment from the JCESD 4 Board of Commissioners Sam Job, Ed O’Brien, Chris Lanier, Jim Mccallie, and Calvin Bear Cooper.


Training will be completed this weekend and units will immediately go into service.


On behalf of all 5 VFD’s we profess a profound appreciation to all who played a role in securing this new, life saving equipment.


Thank you for helping save lives and protect property in the communities we all serve!
