The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency announced the awarding of a grant for Meridian's Regional Response Team. The grant was in the amount of $252,800.

"We can never be a 100% sure that we're equipped to handle every catastrophe, but we can be 100% sure that we have done all that is humanly possible to protect our communities," said Mayor John Robert Smith. "And I know the Chief and MEMA will insure that we have done that."

At the same ceremony, the U.S. Postal Service presented a plaque to the Meridian Fire Department, in appreciation of its dedicated service to the community.
