Trone, Raskin, Cardin, Van Hollen Announce American Rescue Plan Funding for More Than 60 Fire and EMS Departments in Western Maryland

WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressmen David Trone and Jamie Raskin and Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) today announced $1,381,911 in American Rescue Plan funding for fire and emergency rescue departments across Western Maryland.

“Despite increased challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, emergency and first responders across Maryland continued to deliver life-saving care to those who needed it most,” the lawmakers said. “This new federal funding from the American Rescue Plan will ensure our rural fire and rescue teams have adequate funding and supplies to keep serving Western Maryland.”
