DETROIT (AP) - Detroit and two other southeastern Michigan fire departments are getting a share of grant money from the Department of Homeland Security.

U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan announced Thursday that the Detroit Fire Department will receive nearly $1.2 million, the department in Washtenaw County’s Ann Arbor Township will get $89,000 and the department in Macomb County’s Armada Township will get $24,000.

Levin and Stabenow say the money is to help improve department operations and boost safety for emergency personnel and the public. The money is from the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
