A pair of local communities are among the recipients of grants from the Indiana Homeland Security Foundation. Statewide more than $370,000 was given to 101 recipients in 61 counties for critical needs. Eligible projects include equipping emergency responders with personal protective equipment, acquiring equipment for use by emergency responders, providing radios and technology equipment and training for emergency responders.
Funds come from the purchase of “Secure Indiana” license plates. Locally the town of Bremen was awarded a maximum $4,000 grant to buy rescue equipment. Tippecanoe Township of Marshall County also received $4,000 to buy automated external defibrillators.
