(Dec 29, 2020)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 29 – State representatives and senators from Delaware County applauded a $1.5 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program award to strengthen the county’s 911 system. Through bipartisan efforts, elected officials helped secure grants to benefit more than 560,000 Pennsylvanians and help Delaware County’s first responders. This project will strengthen the security and reliability of the county’s public safety communication system. This includes 24 tower upgrades to provide acceptable county-wide communication coverage, shelter structures, an ice bridge, grounding, electric, HVAC, core work additions and 911 center equipment to communicate effectively in emergency situations with citizens, first responders and with surrounding counties in southeastern Pennsylvania. “Calling 911 and receiving a timely response has been an issue for years throughout Delaware County,” House Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton, D-Delaware/Phila., said. “Thankfully, this funding will help streamline our communications system to ensure that residents in crisis can quickly receive help and support. I’m proud to see lawmakers from both the House and Senate, Democrat and Republican, come together for the safety of the people we represent.” “I’ve heard from many constituents about frustrations they’ve experienced with calling 911 since 2016,” Read more

HARRISBURG, Nov. 18 – State Reps. David Delloso, Leanne Krueger and Jennifer O’Mara, all D-Delaware, announced that Delaware County Technical High School was awarded a $50,000 equipment grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The department awards the competitive grants to school districts and career and technical centers with eight or more approved CTE programs for them to update or purchase new equipment to train students. “The equipment purchased with the help of this grant will benefit our entire region, since Delaware Technical High School consists of students from 15 local school districts,” said Delloso. “Numerous reports have forecast a shortage of skilled workers in Pennsylvania in the years to come, so the need to educate, train and develop skilled workers who are prepared to enter the workforce has never been more important.” Krueger said, “Having the right equipment helps career and technical schools train students properly so they can hit the ground running as they enter the workforce. I’m happy that Delaware County Technical High School will receive this funding, which is a great investment in our kids and our community.” O’Mara said, “Delaware County Technical High School prepares students for some of the most high-demand jobs in Pennsylvania.
