Kingston Fire Department receives federal grant

(KINGSTON) -- The Kingston Fire Department will receive a federal grant in the amount of $106,400 to help improve their operations and boost safety in the community. The grants through the Assistance to Firefighters Program were announced this week by Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin. The Assistance to Firefighters Program allows local fire agencies to compete for grants to buy new emergency vehicles or to improve operations and safety by providing firefighter training or personal protective equipment, modifying existing facilities or buying supplies. Applications are evaluated in a competitive process by a panel of peers from fire and EMS organizations.
