Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Oct. 28 $45 million for counties to improve their emergency communications systems. "In an emergency, every second counts," Governor Cuomo said in a press release. "These awards will help counties access next-generation technology and improve their ability to connect, communicate and respond to disasters and other threats to our communities." Counties can submit applications to fund projects involving infrastructure, equipment, and technology upgrades through the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services.
