Money Granted to Two Local Fire Departments

Wednesday, August 16, 2017


The Department of Homeland Security awards more than nine hundred thousand dollars in grant money for two local fire departments. DHS is giving the Piedmont Fire Department more than $642,000 and giving Linville Fire more than $285,000. Congressman Mike Rogers, who serves on the Committee on Homeland Security, says the grant is part of the 2016 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program, a federal program that supports first responders across the nation. He says the grant for Lineville will help the fire department buy a new firefighting vehicle.
