Grants funding new fire halls in Parkston, Delmont

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Development agency is providing grants for two new fire halls in South Dakota.

The money is being funneled through rural electric cooperatives, with $250,000 going for a new fire hall for the Delmont Fire Protection District and $300,000 going to the Parkston Rural Fire Protection District.

Rural Development State Director Elsie Meeks says the new fire halls will give firefighters a "top functioning facility" and provide them with greater safety features.
