Local fire department getting funding through federal grant
A local fire department is getting a little help through federal funding.
U.S. Representative Ed Whitfield says the Mayfield Fire Department will receive $21,898 as part of a $100,000 grant from the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The grant can be used to purchase emergency response equipment, personal protection equipment, firefighting and emergency vehicles, and training under the operations and safety program.
The Anton Volunteer Fire Department in Hopkins County and the Northwest Volunteer Fire Department in Crofton will also receive part of the grant.
