The recipients of the Volunteer Fire Fund Grants have been announced, and more than 400 departments are being awarded. Chief State Fire Marshal Brian Taylor said $8.6 million is being distributed. He added the grants will go toward equipment such as turnout gear, radio devices and new vehicles. “We focus a lot on the safety equipment of fire departments. And this is crucial for a lot of departments. A lot of your rural departments don’t have the budgets to support the equipment, and the replacement equipment,” Taylor said. Taylor said the lowest-funded volunteer fire departments throughout the state were awarded the grants.
