“The incredible men and women who make up our local fire departments provide a critical service to our community, and they deserve all the help they can get. This pandemic has presented many challenges for our first responders, and I am hopeful that this funding will help provide them with the resources they need to continue their important work in keeping our communities safe.

I am grateful to the USDA for their support and will continue to advocate for our local first responders whose work to protect their neighbors makes our district a safer place for everyone.”
