JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Oran, Mo., fire department was one of eight emergency departments in Missouri to receive free equipment from a federal surplus program, the state's Department of Public Safety announced Thursday.

The equipment comes from the Homeland Defense Equipment Reuse Program, which provides surplus radiological equipment, training and long-term technical support to first-responder agencies applying for the grant.

Fire departments in Bismarck, Purdy, West Plains, Bolivar, the Hazelgreen and Battlefield volunteer fire departments, and the State Emergency Management Agency also received equipment through the program.
