Fire department receives grant
An Assistance to Firefighters $357,750 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will allow the department to pay 90 percent of the cost of replacing 75 self-contained breathing apparatuses, the release says. The equipment will be used by both volunteers and paid county staff, it says.
Two months ago, the department found out it would get $172,000 from a Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services' Rescue Squad Assistance grant, the release says.
