Putnam County fire departments will benefit from grants given by the state. The Putnam County Sentinel reports 10 departments in the county will split nearly $91,000 to offset the costs of communication upgrades. The money is helping pay for Multi-Agency Radio Communication System equipment.
Many of the departments needed to upgrade batteries in their existing radios. Some were looking to buy extra radios for use in the field.
Fire chiefs in Putnam County met last summer and decided to apply for the grant money as a region rather than as individual departments.
