The city will get about $45,000 worth of equipment to be used for homeland security.

One piece of equipment will be used to check for chemicals in the air. The rest of the money will go for equipment needed by first responders in an attack.

The city manager says the threat of war isn't pushing them to get the equipment. They've been pushing for it all along.

"I just feel we need to be prepared as quickly as possible, because we don't know when something like 9-11 may occur again...and it could occur most anywhere," said City Manager Roger Baker.

The money is provided by a grant from the federal government.
