Iowa Congressman Dave Loebsack announced Friday that the Davenport Fire Department will receive a total of $611,727 for recruitment purposes. The funding comes from the Department of Homeland Security's Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program.

The SAFER program is designed to strengthen the nation's ability to respond to fire and fire-related hazards and improve the nation's overall level of preparedness by supporting the hiring of firefighters and the recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters.
