Two local fire districts are among the 185 fire fighting organizations to share in the matching grants provided by the United States Forest Service and the Missouri Department of Conservation. Total funding for the fire department matching grants this year is $378,264, with a maximum of $3,000 going to any one fire district or department. The funds are to go for the purchase of personal protective gear and fire equipment for wildfire and structure fires.
