Muscatine Fire To Apply For New Grants


MUSCATINE, IA – The Muscatine Mayor said city leaders have given their fire department the go-ahead to apply for a federal grant to hire more firefighters.

The money would pay salaries and benefits for four new firefighters over the next two years.

It’s called the “Safer” Grant and it was created to help increase the number of trained, “front line” firefighters available in communities.

The application period opens next month with awards announced this summer.
