Rhode Island has been awarded a federal grant to ensure its emergency responders can effectively respond to incidents involving hazardous materials.

Sen. Jack Reed announced the funding for the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency Friday. The agency is getting a Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness grant for about $125,000 to help it better respond to hazardous materials transportation incidents.

The grant program is administered by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
