MARYVILLE, Mo. — Thanks in part to a grant, the Polk Township Rural Fire Department is a little better equipped to fight off field and grass fires.
The Missouri Department of Conservation Forestry Division awarded a $645 matching funds grant to the department for the purchase of protective gear and equipment for wildfires as well as structure fires.
The Tri-C Rural Fire Department also received a matching grant. Totaling more than $1,500, their grant also will go toward gear and equipment.
