AR Fire Depts. Receive Federal Grants For New Vehicles

Four rural fire departments in Arkansas will get federal grants to buy new firefighting vehicles.

The announcement came yesterday from the Federal Homeland Security Department.

The counties receiving the grants are Cleburne, Phillips, and Fulton.

A fire department in Evening Shade is also included but a release did not specify if the community involved was in Hempstead or Sharp county.

At this time it is not yet known how much money each department will get.
