The Keota Fire Department has received a $4,795 grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation Competitive Grant Awards. Keota Fire Chief Michael Detweiler says they are using the grant for emergency lighting. They will be using the money for the last part of a lighting project, a light tower for a pumper truck that will be able to rotate 360 degrees and be able to light up a large area with just one truck. He says the grant money will help finish paying for the project along with other grants that the Keota Fire Department received.
