Three local fire departments are receiving grants for new equipment to improve safety.
The Sea Breeze Fire Department and Clifton Fire Department (near Wheatland) will both receive $113,000 each to buy new breathing apparatuses for their firefighters.
The Point Pleasant Fire Department in Irondequoit will receive approximately $50,000 for a new hose so it can better maintain water supply levels at fires.
The grants are from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
