More than $156,000 in federal funding will help support two local fire departments. Rep. Paul Tonko made that announcement Tuesday.

In this round of funding from the assistance to firefighter’s grants program, the Burnt Hills Fire Department will receive more than $121,000, and the South Glens Falls Fire Company will receive nearly $35,000.

The money will help buy radios, equipment maintenance, and other safety equipment.
