The Russell County Ambulance Service has been awarded a regional grant through the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The $953,059 grant is for operations and safety, and will contribute to both Russell County Ambulance Service, and the Adair County Ambulance Service and Firefighters. The purpose of the AFG program is to enhance the ability of fire departments and emergency management service (EMS) organizations that are not affiliated with hospitals to protect the health and safety of the public, as well as first-responder personnel. Grants are awarded through a competitive process. Applications are reviewed on how the funds will fulfill the top priorities of the AFG program which are operations and safety, and vehicle acquisition. Information courtesy of Rep.
