PAXTON, Mass. — The fire department has added eight automatic defibrillators and two cardiac monitors to its arsenal thanks to a $76,000 federal grant.

U.S. Rep. James P. McGovern visited the Paxton Public Safety Complex Wednesday, Jan. 9, to announce the grant, which was awarded by the Department of Homeland Security's FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.
McGovern said he had "no doubt'' that the grant would "save lives.''
