The Streamwood Fire Department will receive a $211,410 federal grant, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin announced Wednesday.

The Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency awarded the grant, expected to finance new equipment for firefighters, like oxygen tanks and face masks.

Since 2001, the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program has funneled $5.25 billion to public safety organizations across the country, officials say.
