WASHINGTON- Midlothian Fire Department will receive a $81,000 grant to support firefighters and their work as first responders, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn announced Friday, Jan. 21.

"This funding will help make sure first responders at the Midlothian Fire Department will have the resources necessary to keep the surrounding community safe," said Cornyn."

The funding, coming from the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency, can be used for training and support operations and to purchase firefighter safety and rescue equipment. "We have a responsibility to support those working on the front lines every day to protect families, homes and property," said Coryn.

The award aims to enhance first responders’ ability to protect the health and safety of the public, as well as that of first-responder personnel, with respect to fire-related hazards.

Cornyn has held roundtables with emergency first responders across Texas as part of his ongoing effort to support their work. The events provide communities with the opportunity to express their needs and concerns directly.
