December 29, 2004

EL DORADO, KS — U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt announced that the El Dorado Fire Department will receive a $225,000 federal grant through the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters grant program, according to the El Dorado Times newspaper.The funds will be used to purchase a pumper-tanker vehicle for the fire department. El Dorado City Manager Gus Collins said the grant will pay the bulk of the cost involved in acquiring a $275,000 truck for the fire department. Collins explained that the city had applied unsuccessfully for three years to obtain grant funding for the new pumper-tanker. Grant awards are administered by the Department of Homeland Security's Office for Domestic Preparedness in cooperation with the U.S. Fire Administration.
