Bernalillo County Commissioners have approved funding for more firefighters. 

BCFD received a “SAFER” grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. 

The grant will total almost $1.5 million over five years, and the county will match more than $560,000 of that. 

They say it will allow the county to add 10 new full time firefighter positions, alleviating some overtime costs.
