LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Local fire departments get some help from FEMA or the Federal Emergency Management Administration. 

A grant for $120,868 will provide training opportunities to 120 West Texas fire departments in the northern South Plains and the Panhandle of Texas.  That includes nine fire departments in Lubbock County. 

A written statement says the grant will allow firefighters to achieve advanced level of training within three years. The state Fire Marshal's office categorizes firefighters as introductory, basic, intermediate and advanced. Most of the departments are comprised of volunteers.
