Boucher announces funds for Pulaski first responders

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Rick Boucher announced today that as a result of the Recovery Act approved by Congress and signed into law by President Obama, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, through its Rural Development Agency, is awarding Pulaski County first responders a total of $77,500 to purchase new equipment. The Snowville Volunteer Fire Department is receiving a grant of $50,000 to assist in the purchase of two new fire trucks, and the Town of Pulaski is receiving a grant of $27,500 to assist in the purchase of two new police vehicles.
“Our region’s firefighters, rescue squad members and law enforcement officers are our first line of defense in times of emergency. With the benefit of the federal Recovery Act funds, first responders in Pulaski County will be able to purchase up-to-date equipment which will assist them in protecting residents of Pulaski County,” Boucher said.
The Snowville Volunteer Fire Department will receive a federal grant of $50,000 to enable the purchase of two new pumper trucks. The new trucks will replace older models currently in use by the Department. The new trucks will enable the Department to operate the most up to date equipment ensuring that the Department’s members are able to fight fires safely and efficiently. The Snowville Volunteer Fire Department has 30 members, all of whom serve on a voluntary basis. The Department provides fire protection to 80 square miles in Pulaski County.
The Town of Pulaski will receive a federal grant of $27,500 to enable the purchase of two new police cars which will replace older models currently in use by the Department. The older models have become expensive to maintain due to high mileage. The new vehicles will enable the Department to protect Pulaski residents more efficiently.
"I am pleased that the Rural Development Agency is providing these Recovery Act funds to the Town of Pulaski and the Snowville Volunteer Fire Department. It is important to ensure the safety of our fire and rescue personnel, and today’s announcement will help further this goal," Boucher concluded.
