Richland fire grant | News
In Hopkins County, the Richland Fire Department has received a large grant. Friday, U.S. Representative Ed Whitfield announced the $546,000 Operations and Safety Funding grant. It will be used for building an infrastructure regional radio communications system for all Hopkins County first responders.
The vision for this project began five years ago with an estimated cost of $2.8 million.
Officials say the state of the art radio system will be the most advanced in the entire Tri-State region.
