After three years of applying and re-applying for a grant, the Lewistown Fire Department’s work paid off.
The grant of over $300,000 will go toward new equipment and training. But, Fire Chief Travis Myklebust said they are not the only department who will benefit from this grant. Lewiston plans to donate old equipment to local departments in need.
Chief Myklebust said some local departments use equipment that is 40-years-old. He hopes to help out as many fire departments as he can. The new devices are scheduled to come in by November.
