INDIANAPOLIS – The DNR Division of Forestry divvied out more than $194,000 in grants to rural and volunteer fire departments from 29 Indiana counties.

The Volunteer Fire Assistance grants – made available through the USDA Forest Service – were provided to recipients that met requirements for population density, acres of public, protected wild lands, and wild land fire reporting to Department Natural Resources Fire Control Headquarters.

The 44 total departments receiving grants– varying from $969 to $5,000 – plan to use the money to purchase firefighting equipment and personal protective gear, offset firefighter-training costs, or install dry hydrants.
