Rockland First Responder Communication System Fund Grows


NEW CITY – Funding to build a Rockland County Public Safety Communications System grew Friday as Senator Charles Schumer and Representative Nita Lowey announced a $250,000 grant for the system. That is on top of $550,000 Lowey previously secured and $600,000 in another federal grant already delivered to Rockland for the program that will connect police, fire and EMTs on an interoperable radio system.

Schumer noted the importance of such a system, saying its necessity was proven during the September 11 attacks when the various emergency services agencies in New York City were unable to communicate with one another.

“It is essential that our first responders be able to effectively community with each other in everyday work and during emergencies,” the senator said.

County Executive C. Scott Vanderhoef said that every dollar received “will be used to keep our residents safe.”

This most beautiful piece of art is part of the Shul’s newly installed Building Fund Wall of Honor.

The mural, Jerusalem Flow and Flourish, will be appreciated most in person and all are invited to visit the shul at 2 Langeries Drive in Monsey. For the explanations behind the meaning of the piece click here.
