The Grant Park Firefighter's Association has been instrumental over the years to keep down expenses for the fire district. Over the years they have purchased many items from vehicles, equipment, uniforms, training props and much more. One of the largest purchases they have accomplished over the years was outfitting the furniture, AV equipment, televisions and furnishings in the new fire station when built in 2010. All of these items were donated to the taxpayers by the Association.
