MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The state of Vermont is going to be getting $6.7 million in federal grants to be ready to respond to natural disasters or acts of terrorism.

U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy announced the grants on Tuesday. They were awarded by the Department of Homeland Security.

The separate grants of $3.7 million and $3 million will be used for a variety of planning activities.

Leahy says the grants will ensure that first responders across the state have the resources they need to train for the unexpected and respond when disasters or acts of terrorism occur.
