The Annapolis Fire Department has been awarded $225,000 in a federal grant to purchase a new fire and rescue boat that will serve the historic port and waterways of several counties, city officials announced yesterday.

The funds were provided by U.S. Department of Homeland Security under the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program and will be combined with a $25,000 contribution from the city, said Fire Chief Michael P. Lonergan.

The award is part of $750 million that was distributed through the program to departments nationwide.
