It’s perfect timing; a Homeland Security Department grant could come to Bend soon to fund some much needed firefighters. Bend Mayor Jeff Eager says the grant is for $615,000 and the City should know any day now if they are getting the money: "So the grant is for, to pay for 3 firefighters for 2 years. 3 new firefighters- so that's helpful to us because the City, due to it's budget situation has not been able to fund 4 vacant positions over the last few years." Eager says the 3 new firefighters would help improve coverage and response time and be a welcome boost during a time of a very tight budget.
