Fire stations in Beaufort and Port Royal received federal money to improve air quality in the stations.
The Federal Assistance to Firefighters Grant is for $76,364, and the Beaufort-Port Royal Fire Department will contribute another $7,636 to the project. The work will outfit two stations -- headquarters on Ribaut Road in Beaufort and Port Royal's station on Paris Avenue -- with air systems that capture exhaust from fire trucks while they run in enclosed bays.
