WILKES-BARRE — Some new firefighters are now on the job in Wilkes-Barre.

Officials swore in 11 new firefighters Wednesday at city hall.

The mayor’s office says a Federal Emergency Management grant will pay the salaries of eight firefighters.

The money for the other three comes from the fire department’s budget.

The new hires bring the total number of Wilkes-Barre firefighters to 70.
