The Robards Volunteer Fire Department received a $22,000 grant through homeland security to fund nine sets of firefighter gear.
Fire Chief David Denton says their current equipment is out of date and they needed an upgrade.
Denton says he's thankful to receive the grant because they wouldn't have been able to purchase the uniforms on their own.
