Graham Announces $100,000 in Federal Funds for Lake City

WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced Lake City will receive a $50,000 grant and a $50,000 loan to help purchase a 75-foot ladder truck for the Lake City Fire Department. The Department does not currently have a ladder truck. “Firefighters risk their lives everyday to protect South Carolinians,” said Graham. “They deserve the best equipment money can buy. This new truck will allow the Lake City Fire Department to better serve the businesses and residents of the city.” The grant and loan were awarded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. ####
