Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

The Roberts Park Fire Protection District, which now includes the Village of Justice, has been awarded $569,674 through the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. The grant will help with hiring expenses. The Village of Justice became part of the Roberts Park Fire Protection District this past April.

The Assistance to Firefighters Grant program provides needed federal funds to fire departments and emergency medical service organizations in order to improve their response capabilities and the safety of our communities.
