LITTLETON — After a public hearing during its meeting on Monday, the Select Board voted 3-0 to approve the acceptance of a state backfill/overtime grant of up to $11,450 for Littleton Fire Rescue to pay for active shooter training. The federal money was given to the New Hampshire Department of Safety and State Fire Academy, which disbursed it to the town. In addition to LFR personnel, the grant also pays for law enforcement participation to train on active threats, said LFR Chief Chad Miller. The grant will allow LFR to participate in hands-on physical training in combination with law enforcement for what’s called a rescue task force, said Miller.
