Four Hamilton County fire departments will receive over $1 million in federal funds from FEMA for operations and safety management.
Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) announced the additional funds coming from FEMA and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Friday.
The awards come to the four local fire departments through the Assistance to Firefighters Grants program. “Ohio firefighters and first-responders work every day to protect our families,” Brown said. “We must support our first-responder organizations so that communities in Hamilton County have the resources to shield families and homes from fire hazards."
