The grant will help fund professional training programs, update equipment and facilities and provide new supplies to help the department handle hazards efficiently.
The grant is for the fiscal year 2012 round. The grant program began in 2001. FEMA announced several awards Friday morning that will go to departments all over the country.
"Across Michigan, our firefighters provide courageous service to communities...," said U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow in a statement. "This grant makes sure they have the resources they need to perform their duties safely and protect the public."
