Federal grants worth nearly half million dollars will help a Marion County (OH) village fire department stay safe.
A truck used by the Caledonia Fire District was deemed unsafer. The 30-year-old truck was built by hand by a former fire chief and several of his employees.
The department is getting three Department of Homeland Security grants this year.
One grant will cover the $150,000 for the new truck, while another will cover equipment and gear. A third grant will help hire firefighters.
