WASHINGTON – Town of Newburgh Emergency Medical Services will receive $7,554 in federal funding through the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.
The town will use the funds to upgrade their communications equipment to coordinate with 911.
“These much needed federal funds will provide crucial assistance,
such as improving existing facilities and upgrading personal protective
equipment” for the town’s emergency services, said US Senator
Charles Schumer.
“These funds will allow our first responders in the Town of Newburgh to purchase the up-to-date equipment they need to stay safe and do their jobs effectively,” said Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
