Senator Stabenow Announces Support for Osceola County to Buy Communications Equipment for First RespondersMonday, July 13, 2015
U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today announced support for Osceola County. This funding comes through the USDA's Rural Development Economic Impact Initiative Grant program, which funds critical infrastructure in rural communities across the country. The $10,800 grant will be used to purchase new mobile radios to help emergency responders communicate with each other and central dispatch.
"Emergency responders have to cover many miles to protect our families, homes, and communities," said Stabenow. "This support will help Osceola County buy new radios so first responders can communicate more efficiently and protect their community."
Senator Stabenow is Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, which oversees the USDA and its Rural Development program.
