The Kentucky Office of Homeland Security has awarded the Wayne 
County Fiscal Court a $62,400 competitive grant to make necessary 
upgrades to the areas of communications and infrastructure systems.
    Wayne County was one of only 31 counties awarded funds through the 
State Homeland Security Grant Program.
    "I am thrilled to know that our areas communications technology will 
be upgraded to meet the needs of our brave first responders," State 
Representative Ken Upchurch said. "Our first responders deserve to 
have the best possible technology at their disposal when responding 
to emergency situations, and selflessly serving the public. With this 
grant, this is now possible."
    This grant was made possible by the State Homeland Security Grant 
Program.
    Funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the State 
Homeland Security Grant Program (SHSGP) provides resources to city 
and county governments, special taxing districts, and public school 
districts to purchase first responder equipment, communications 
equipment, critical infrastructure protection, and cybersecurity protection.
