East Moline Fire Department gets Homeland Security grant
The East Moline Fire Department received a $104,400 grant from the 2004 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. They plan to spend it on a system to remove excess diesel exhaust from fire stations and standby generators to provide power to the stations in event of a power outage.
Hmmmm. I guess at least East Moliners will be safe if terrorists attempt to attack firefighters by pumping diesel exhaust into their fire stations.
