Grant Submitted For MCFD Equipment Upgrades

Mt. Carmel firefighters are hoping to get some help from a grant to replace lifesaving equipment. City finance commissioner Joe Judge said he has submitted an American Firefighter grant through the Greater Wabash Regional Planning Commission. The grant would be for just over $200,000 and would purchase 8 air tanks and air masks for the local fire department….

Judge said the city’s application has the backing of Congressman John Shimkus.
