Improving Emergency Response in Northwest Central PA
Yesterday in Clarion I announced $500,000 for a 6 county emergency response interoperable project for the Northwest Central PA Emergency Response Group. With funding from the department of Homeland Security, emergency service operations in Clarion, Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson and McKean counties will be able to communicate and work together with hospitals, regional state and federal agencies to better respond to accidents and emergencies.
I was especially impressed with the technological amenities that the mobile command unit offered emergency response officials. It was great to talk about this collaborative partnership with key stakeholders and I look forward to spreading the word about this project as I travel across Pennsylvania.
