MEDIA – Rep. Chris Quinn (R-Delaware) announced on Monday that the state has recently
awarded $1.5 million for Delaware County emergency services.

The Delaware County 911 Center received a $1.5 million grant to upgrade their communications
systems for emergency personnel.

“This grant is critically important and will greatly benefit Delaware County,” Quinn said. “The
upgrades to our emergency communications are crucial to ensuring that the public can receive
the assistance they need during a crisis.”

The emergency communications grant will enable the county to upgrade 24 towers to better
communicate during a wide variety of emergencies. Specifically, the tower upgrades will provide
acceptable countywide communication coverage, shelter structures, ice bridge, grounding,
electric, HVAC, core work additions, and 911 center equipment.

The grant was received through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP). RACP
is a Commonwealth grant program administered by the Office of the Budget for the acquisition
and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement
