Carbon County Legislators Announce Funding for Local Projects

HARRISBURG, January 25, 2012 - - State Sen. John Yudichak (D-Luzerne/Carbon/Monroe), state Sen. David Argall (R-Schuylkill/Carbon) and state Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) today announced more than $1 million in state funding for Carbon County to improve communication systems and facilities for emergency personnel.

“This essential state funding not only enhances the quality of our local emergency preparedness, but it also puts Carbon County on a level playing field with other counties around Pennsylvania,” Yudichak said. “Any state funding dedicated to improving the overall safety and well-being of Pennsylvania residents is money well spent.”

The legislators announced funding in the amount of $907,453 to bring Carbon County into compliance with the FCC conversion mandate by purchasing 388 portable radios, 149 mobile radios, and 498 pages to upgrade county and municipal EMS, police, and fire department communication systems.

“The Carbon County Commissioners and on behalf of the local municipalities, thank Senators Yudichak and Argall and Representative Heffley for their support,” Carbon County Commissioner Wayne Nothstein said. “These funds will be used for the purchase of new radio equipment for the emergency services, saving the local municipalities, emergency services and taxpayers.”

“Even in the midst of this difficult recession, public safety should never be jeopardized,” Argall added. “These funds are vital for improving the safety and security of Carbon County residents.”
