HAVERSTRAW, NY – Senator James Skoufis touted a $351,925 grant to Rockland County to support its emergency response operations and make critical improvements to 9-1-1 dispatch functions. The funding, announced Friday, will be administered by the State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services.
“Rockland County is more than deserving of this critical funding,” said Senator Skoufis. “Our emergency service providers are on the front lines every day, responding to what may ultimately be life-and-death situations, in often unpredictable circumstances. Improving our communications infrastructure will save more lives while making the work of our dispatchers and first responders faster and more effective.”
“These funds help recipients make important upgrades such as text-to-9-1-1 and implement other next-generation 9-1-1 technology so they’re ready to handle calls for help and to dispatch first responders immediately,” said Patrick A. Murphy, Commissioner of the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. “Since 2014, the state has distributed approximately $60 million to help our local partners improve their public safety answering point capabilities.”
