Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Transportation says it's giving West Virginia almost $238,000 to help train emergency personnel to respond to hazardous material accidents.
The DOT says the grant announced Monday also is supposed to provide training for dealing with new chemicals and energy products such as ethanol.
The agency says every U.S. State, Guam and seven American Indian tribes received a training grant this year.
