The Defiance fire department received a $20,023 grant to send eight firefighters to Pueblo, Colo., for hazardous material spill training at the Transportation Technology Center.

A $8,344.50 grant request from the Hardin County emergency management agency was approved. The agency will provide hazardous materials training for area firefighters in the event of an emergency at a hospital.
