Seven fire companies and emergency service providers in Chester and Delaware counties were awarded a total of $148,208 in state grants for facility upgrades, equipment, education, and recruitment. “These grants are a testament to our continued support of our first responders,” said Shusterman, a Democrat representing Tredyffrin, Easttown, Schuylkill and Willistown townships. Shusterman thanked Gov. Josh Shapiro’s administration for the funding, noting the emergency services providers keep the communities safer.
In other news, a New Jersey man was found with an unloaded gun at the Philadelphia International Airport on Friday, according to Transportation Security Administration.
