Grant money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is coming to two southern West Virginia communities. On Friday, July 13, 2018, U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) announced $374,307 is coming to Boone County and the Town of Quinwood.
The money comes from FEMA’s Firefighters Grant Program. It will be used to buy equipment.
“From flood recovery to support for our first responders, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security provides invaluable resources to West Virginia communities,” said Sen. Capito. “As chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, I am thrilled to see this funding come to southern West Virginia. I will continue to fight for resources that keep our state and our nation safe.”
The funding will be split up with $221, 230 going to Quinwood Emergency Ambulance, Inc. and $153,077 going to Boone County Ambulance Authority.
