Harrison County Emergency Medical Services is getting a $186,000 federal grant to improve its operations.
U.S. Senators Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin announced the funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday.
The Clarksburg-based volunteer emergency squad can use the grant to buy personal protective equipment, response equipment and vehicles.
