Recently, Simpsonville Fire Chief Walter Jones had 30 sets of his firefighters' gear sent off and tested.
"They told us we had one good coat," Jones said.
A federal grant of just over $77,000 announced by Congressman Ron Lewis's office last week should fix that. The department will use $48,000 of the grant for new coats and pants that firefighters call turnout gear. A complete set, including helmet and boots, costs about $2,000 each.
The department will spend the rest of the money on hand-held radio equipment.
