SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - The Springfield City Council has approved spending more than $300,000 on new radios and breathing gear for Springfield Fire and Life Safety as it prepares for the merger with the Eugene Fire Department.

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/1bBdHfV ) the purchase will make sure that firefighters in both departments are using the same equipment.

The merger began in 2010 and will be complete in July when Eugene and Springfield firefighters will start working shifts at fire stations in both cities.
