TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – The Tarrytown Fire Department is getting a $46,594 federal grant, U.S. Representative Nita Lowey has announced.
The money, from the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant program, will help the department buy new radios.
“As the senseless across-the-board budget cuts reduce funding for first responders and law enforcement officials in New York and around the country, it is good news that our first responders in Tarrytown will have access to these funds that will help make our community safer,” Lowey said in a statement.
Tarrytown Mayor Drew Fixell agreed.
“We are deeply grateful to Congresswoman Lowey for her assistance in obtaining this grant for critically important equipment that will enable our firefighters to better protect the lives and property of all of our residents,” he said in a statement.
