[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

The state will receive $6.2 million to build an aircraft rescue and fire fighting building at Lanai Airport.

U.S. Sens. Daniel Inouye and Daniel Akaka said yesterday that the money comes from a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Inouye said working families and visitors need safe and timely transportation between the islands. He said the funding will allow first responders to prepare for and respond to any emergency event that might arise at Lanai Airport.

Akaka said the grant will increase safety for residents and visitors flying to Lanai by stationing a new emergency response facility right at the airport.
