A $1.2 million federal grant means some Waukegan firefighters will be able to keep their jobs.

Four Waukegan firefighters had been notified that they would be laid off.

This money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, however, will be used to pay salaries and benefits for two years for those firefighters.
