Cayuga County E-911 has been awarded nearly $1 million in state grant funds under two separate programs, according to a county release.
The first program called the Statewide Interoperable Communications Grant awarded the county about $780,000 to make improvements in the way first responders can communicate between different regions of the state using land mobile radio systems.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that program's awards on Tuesday, giving out $55 million statewide. Onondaga County also received funding — about $1.3 million from the program.
