UTICA, N.Y. -- The Utica Fire Department is getting nearly a million dollars from the federal government to help hire more firefighters.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says the money comes from the Department of Homeland Security's SAFER program. The program is part of an effort to help fire departments that are facing cutbacks provide full time staffing to the communities they serve.
