New federal resources have been awarded to a fire department in Huron County. U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) has announced that Norwalk Fire Department has been awarded resources for operations and safety by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) program.

“Our first responders put their lives on the line every day across Ohio,” Brown said. “These funds ensure that firefighters in Norwalk have the resources they need to perform their jobs safely.”

This is round 20 of the competitive Fiscal Year 2012 AFG announcements. The Norwalk Fire Department was awarded $180,607.

The Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) program helps firefighters and other first responders purchase protective equipment, vehicles, and gear, according to FEMA.
