Delaware Gets
Grant from FEMA
 
State of Delaware ...

The State of Delaware will receive $517,672 in grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for state and local emergency preparedness programs, according to Gov. Ruth Ann Minner.

Announced on Monday, Dec. 23, 2002, the grants will help state and local government agencies update plans and procedures to respond to all hazards, with a focus on weapons of mass destruction, Minner said.

"This grant comes at an especially good time given our tight economic situation," Governor Minner said. "This will help ensure that we are prepared in case of acts of terrorism or other emergencies."

The grant also will allow for a review of emergency operations centers and to help with a program that would encourage citizen volunteerism in case of an emergency.

"DEMA is pleased to receive initial funding to enhance local and state planning, provide a comprehensive assessment of our state Emergency Operations Center, and to initiate the development and delivery of Community Emergency Response Training," said James E. Turner III, director of the Delaware Emergency Management Agency.

"The funding divided between state and local emergency management agencies will provide us with the capability to enhance plans and to implement training that ultimately will protect our citizens."

FEMA awarded more than $12 million in grants to Region III states, which include Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
