The grant will be used to purchase critical communication equipment for the department.

Columbia firefighters plan to use the funding to purchase equipment for the entire department, including portable radios for the stations and trucks, a mobile antenna and other radio parts. The equipment will be purchased for each fire station to help personnel stay in communication throughout the city.
