Local fire department receives federal grant

A local fire department is getting improvements thanks to a federal grant.

U.S. Representative Ed Whitfield announced on Monday that the Water Valley Volunteer Fire Department in Graves County is getting a $63,905 Operations and Safety grant.

Money from the grant can be used for professional training, wellness and fitness programs equipment, personal protection equipment, modifications to facilities, and supplies that support firefighting and non-affiliated EMS operations and safety.

The grant is from the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.
