Pulaski County EMA Director Gets Grant to Purchase Equipment


Pulaski County EMA Director Larry Hoover presented the commissioners Monday night with paperwork for an EMPG grant worth $8,485.29.

Hoover told WKVI News that he will be using the grant money to purchase rescue equipment. The piece of equipment that will be the most costly is a trailer in which to house the equipment. He plans on purchasing heavy lifting air bags and other equipment needed to aid workers in emergency situations.

The commissioners signed the paperwork as requested. The grant is a reimbursable grant. Hoover will purchase the items and submit receipts to the Department of Homeland Security to be reimbursed.
