Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that more than $11.9 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds will be used for fire-station construction grants.

Three recent grant awards were selected through a competitive peer-review process based on need to build new or modify existing fire stations to enhance response capabilities and protect communities from fire-related hazards. This money will replace unsafe or uninhabitable structures and expand fire protection coverage in compliance with National Fire Protection Association standards.
