Freeport's Fire Department got a big economic boost. The department will get a nearly $60,000 federal Fire Act Grant.

More than 19,000 fire agencies applied for the grants. Freeport is one of only 74 fire departments in the country to be awarded one.

The money will be used to replace aging Self Contained Breathing devices and testing equipment.

Three other Illinois departments were awarded grants.
