GREENBURGH SEEKS $107,564 IN FED. FUNDS
Release Date: February 03, 2003

Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner has written to US Senators Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton and Congresswoman Nita Lowey seeking $l07,564 in federal funds to enable the town to "do our job of preparing for a terrorist incident correctly." The town of Greenburgh has been providing increased training to our police emergency medical services personnel to address the threat of terrorism, said Feiner in his letter. We have begun to purchase specialized equipment to ensure that emergency service providers can safely enter contaminated areas to treat and evacuate patients. Unfortunately, our resources fall short of ensuring that a viable initial response to a major incident can be mounted. Feiner said that Police Chief John Kapica has prepared a list of equipment that is needed that will enable Greenburgh to do its job protecting the public and minimizing losses. The purchase of the equipment will assist in the search, rescue and containment operations that are required in the event of a frightening incident.
