EDGEWATER, N.J. -- The Hudson River town of Edgewater will use a federal grant to purchase and support a small rescue boat, reported NorthJersey.com.

Officials said the borough already has a larger boat, which frequently is dispatched to rescue fisherman, recover bodies of suicides and fight fires, the story said. The second boat will give the town better preparedness for riverfront emergencies, the story said.

The $104,813 grant will cover costs of the boat purchase, as well as training, maintenance and equipment for both fireboats, and was made by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as part of its program to secure and strengthen infrastructure, according to the story.
