Grant will pay for new technology for firefighters
During these days of penny pinching and dollar stretching, a $23,500 federal grant award to the Farmington Fire Department comes in handy.
The Assistance to Firefighters Grant award, received last month, is the third such grant Farmington has received in as many years. The first helped the local department buy breathing apparatus, the second went toward the purchase of new turnout gear for firefighters. This one puts new computers in all of Farmington's first-response vehicles.
