Fire departments in Portage and Kalamazoo Township have won big federal grants. They were announced Thursday by Michigan’s two U.S. senators.

Democrats Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow say Portage will get nearly $634,000 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Kalamazoo Township will receive nearly $56,000.

The money can be used for training, equipment, and supplies.
