The New Windsor Fire and Hose Company No. 1 has received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that will pay most of the cost of a back-up generator and sprinkler system in its new fire station. The generator is important because "the New Windsor fire hall could be used by the community in an emergency ... as a shelter," said Neal Roop, 46, a town councilman and a member of the fire company for 29 years. Roop did the paperwork for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant awarded by FEMA, which became part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security last year.
