Third time was the charm for the New Prague Fire Department. The department learned it has received a $17,700 Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Department of Homeland Security.

This was the third time the department had applied for the grant. The majority of the grant, $16,815, is a federal grant.

New Prague firefighters Greg Pint and Phil Werner worked on the grant.
