The Bussey and Melcher-Dallas volunteer Fire Departments are among 83 rural Iowa departments that have been awarded funding to aid in their efforts to protect area residents and their property from wildfires. The grants come from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and offer assistance for wildlife suppression equipment, personal protective equipment, and communications equipment. It’s a cost-sharing grant where the departments are required to match 50 percent of what they are awarded.
