U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today announced support for five fire departments across southeast Michigan to help improve operations and safety.

Senator Stabenow said, "Our firefighters provide brave and crucial services to communities across Southeast Michigan. These grants will provide the resources and tools they need to perform their duties effectively and protect the public."

Senator Levin said, "Our firefighters put their lives on the line every day, and we owe them and the communities they serve all the support we can provide."

The following fire departments were awarded grants:
