VIDEO: Atlantic City Firefighters Receive Federal Funding
ATLANTIC CITY - Thanks to recently announced federal funding, 85 Atlantic City firefighters get the chance to keep serving. U.S. Senators Bob Menendez and Cory Booker, and Congressman Frank Lobiondo announced that the city will receive the federal staffing for adequate fire and emergency response grant. The 85 firemen were set to be laid off due to funding shortfalls. The over $21 million grant will be used to keep Atlantic City fire departments fully staffed and prepared to fight blazes around the clock.
