Federal grant to improve Lackawanna Fire Department

By Chris Jamele

Buffalo, NY – Lackawanna Mayor Norm Polanski was joined by Congressman Brian Higgins in announcing a federal grant worth better than $150,000 for the city's fire department.

The grant was secured through a workshop hosted annually by Higgins. The monies will be used to improve communications throughout the department in emergency situations with the addition of new communication devices and computers.

The effort will also better connect the department with Buffalo and surrounding fire departments.
