Rep. Devitis Congratulates The City Of Green Division Of Fire For Earning Safety Capital Grant
Grants will help fund public safety projects in local communities

State Representative Anthony Devitis (R-Green) today congratulated the City of Green Division of Fire for being named a recipient of the Local Government Safety Capital Grant funds.

Initiated by the Ohio House of Representatives and included in the state operating budget for fiscal years 2016 and 2017, these grants can be used to help fund public safety projects in local communities throughout Ohio.

Local governments could apply for the grants for eligible projects, but the funding must be used for purchasing vehicles, equipment, facilities and/or systems utilized by police, fire, and/or EMS providers to enhance public safety.

“It is reassuring knowing that the State of Ohio is concerned about investing in local infrastructure and the benefits it can yield,” said DeVitis. “Safety for our residents is paramount in helping promote good community health and quality of living. Congratulations to Green Fire on receiving the funding.”

The grant will help purchase dispatch radio consoles to ensure the dispatch center is compliant with FCC regulations that require a P25 platform. This funding will replace existing equipment and ensure they’ll be aligned with all county radio systems moving to a P25 system by early 2017.

The Local Government Innovation Council administers the program.
