Posted: Updated:
A Local Fire Department will be receiving money through a grant that only one other department in West Virginia will receive.

Senators Joe Manchin and Jay Rockefeller  announced that two volunteer fire departments will receive money through the "Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program."
 
The Benwood Volunteer Fire Department will receive almost $15,000 through the grant.

The money will go toward operations and safety, to buy training and protective gear, wellness and fitness equipment, and help make improvements to the station.
