The province is investing to support emergency services providers in the wake of Hurricane Fiona.

They say more than $1 million is going to 56 organizations to purchase safety equipment needed to help and protect people and communities.

The funds can be used for personal protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus, communications, rescue equipment, miscellaneous firefighting equipment, hazardous materials equipment and emergency power for buildings.

The program can cover up to 75 per cent of costs to a max of $20,000.

Fire departments and ground search and rescue organizations can apply for the program every three years.
