WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has made a $1,110,266 investment in six fire departments in Illinois. Today's funding will help support and improve the capability of each department to respond to fires and other types of emergencies.

"Our nation's firefighters are called upon day after day to protect America's citizens," Durbin said. "As these brave men and women put themselves in harm's way, we must ensure that they are equipped with the best tools possible to do their jobs well, and today's grants will help meet that goal."
