Arkansas is to receive a nearly one million dollar grant for a homeland security training program at Northwest Arkansas Community College. The grant was announced today. It will establish three new training courses focusing on protecting rural areas and public safety issues in rural areas. The courses will be for first responders. Representative John Boozman, whose district includes the school, said the area is one of the fastest growing in the nation and that a terrorist strike is not inconceivable. He said the grant will ensure that first responders in the area will be prepared.
