Fire departments to share big grant
Fire departments in Douglas County received a big boost this week - $678,240 that will help them communicate with dispatchers while responding to fires.
The Alexandria Fire Department applied for the grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Assistance to Firefighters program.
The money will be used to purchase portable and vehicle radios for all 11 volunteer fire departments in the county.
