On Friday morning, Congressman Shuster was on the road in Chambersburg to announce $500,000 in funding for the Franklin County First Responders Alliance. The Alliance will use the funding to help complete their purchase of new interoperable communications equipment. The new equipment will allow emergency service personnel throughout the county to work with other fire and EMS departments in neighboring counties as well as departments in other states.
The event took place in the Commissioners' Meeting Room at the Franklin County Courthouse in Chambersburg. We had a great turn-out at the announcement, with local elected officials and members of the EMS, fire and police departments that will benefit from the funding.
