Two volunteer fire departments in our area see funds from the Assistance to Firefighter’s Grant Program sponsored through FEMA.

Senator Sherrod Brown said the Roseville Volunteer Fire Department will receive $82,139, while the Senecaville Volunteer Fire Department in Guernsey County gets $92,250.

The money can be used to  buy new vehicles or perform operational and safety equipment updates.

Since 2001 nearly $4 billion in grant money has been awarded to first responder organizations.
