Claremont is getting three addition Firefighters thanks to a SAFER (staffing for adequate fire and emergency) grant for over $500,000. The grant will cover salary and benefits for three firefighters for two years. Fire Chief Rick Bergeron said they received notice of the grant on Jan 10, and said it will restore the department to normal staffing. Chief Bergeron explained the importance of having a four man shift. Two of the current applicants are veterans and that allows the Fire Department to seek an additional grant for their third year of employment.
