Bolivar Fire Department To Triple In Size With FEMA Grant

By Larry Wright. CREATED Jan 28, 2014

A big boost for the fire department in Bolivar.

Thanks to a $600,000 FEMA grant, the department will add nine full time firefighters.

Until now, the department had operated with just one full time firefighter on duty at any given time.

The city will have 90 days to recruit and train the new firefighters.
