Durbin Announces $350,000 Federal Grant For New Fire Station In Crawford County, Illinois
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today announced that the Hutsonville Township Fire Protection District has received $350,000 through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Development Community Facility Grant program to help build a new fire station in Crawford County, Illinois.
“Fire stations are home to the firefighters, first-responders, and fire protection equipment that keep our communities safe. Building a modern new fire station in Crawford County will help ensure that the Hutsonville Township Fire Protection District’s firefighters and first-responders are able to act quickly when an emergency happens in their community,” Durbin said.
The Hutsonville Township Fire Protection District’s current fire station can no longer accommodates their vehicles and equipment, is in need of repairs, and is costly to maintain. The funding announced today will be used to construct a 4,700 square foot facility that meets applicable codes and standards. The new facility will help the Hutsonville Township Fire Protection District continue to provide services to over 1,100 residents in their area.
