NEW MARKET, Md. (AP) — The New Market District Volunteer Fire Co. says it has received a federal grant of more than $83,000.

Deputy Fire Chief Ben Nalborczyk said Friday the department will have to go price-shopping.

He says the money, which came from a firefighters’ grant program, will be used to buy self-contained breathing apparatus, radios, hoses, nozzles and a thermal imaging camera. He says some of the equipment will replace outdated gear.
