LANSING (AP) – Twenty fire departments in Michigan have $1.6 million in federal grants coming their way.

The cash comes through the Department of Homeland Security Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. It’ll be used to help needs in the areas of equipment, training and staffing. The grants were announced this week by U.S. Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow.

The biggest chunk is going to the Berrien Springs Oronoko fire department, which is set to get $404,000. Departments in Lansing, Oakland County’s West Bloomfield Township, Oxford and Westland also are picking up six-figure grants.
