Excerpts from the Herald-News.com:

The Homer Township Fire District will be purchasing new rescue tools thanks to a grant from Illinois American Water. The IAW 2018 Firefighter Grant Program provides financial assistance to fire and emergency organizations serving communities in its service areas. This year, approximately $77,000 will be awarded to 78 Illinois fire departments.

Illinois American Water’s Firefighter Grant Program awards grants to provide personal protective gear, communications equipment, firefighting tools, water handling equipment, training materials, and classroom programs.
