Huron County Fire Departments Get Extra Funding Boost for Breathing Equipment

Several fire departments in Huron County will receive some extra cash to help pay for replacement equipment.

The county received more than $732,454 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighters Grants program. The money is to replace self-contained breathing apparatus-style air packs.

Departments benefitting from the funding include those in Bad Axe, Caseville, Harbor Beach, Port Ausitn, plus Bingham, Sherman and Sigel townships.
