Herndon Receives Homeland Security Grant

Herndon has received a $200,000 homeland security grant to buy emergency response equipment, officials said.

The equipment includes NOAA weather radios and a custom trailer so the department of public works can more efficiently transport materials, supplies and other equipment to a response location.
The grant also includes money to purchase and install an auxiliary, or emergency, generator for the town's municipal center. The grant is administered by the county Office of Emergency Management.
