    Post Federal Funds coming!

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Eight Iowa fire departments were awarded
    federal funds Wednesday from the U.S. Department of Homeland
    Security to increase effectiveness of fire operations and to
    support firefighter safety.
    The grants announced Sens. Tom Harkin and Charles Grassley, will
    help fire departments buy equipment, make fire station
    modifications and pay for firefighter safety programs.
    "The equipment, technology and training these grants will
    support are the key to protecting Iowa's firefighters and our homes
    and loved ones," Harkin said.
    Fire departments in Allerton, Anamosa, Cylinder, Dunkerton,
    Hawkeye, Jewell, Primghar and Waucoma will receive amounts ranging
    from $27,000 to $162,000.
    The Department of Homeland Security will distribute $750 million
    to fire departments across the country by September 2004.
    "Firefighters are a critical part of Iowa's communities and we
    need to make sure they are adequately equipped to respond to
    emergencies," Grassley said.
