Kansas Ag Connection - 09/11/2020

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development State Director for Kansas Lynne Hinrichsen Thursday announced that USDA is investing $42,200 to purchase emergency response equipment for the city's fire and law enforcement departments in the city of Yates Center.

"Safe, reliable equipment for emergency response providers is essential to providing quality service," Hinrichsen said. "Investments like today's help ensure the continued safety of both the community and the brave men and women providing emergency services. Under the leadership of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Deputy Under Secretary for Rural Development Bette Brand, USDA is dedicated to rural communities like Yates Center and their long-term commitments to economic prosperity; because when rural America prospers, all of America prospers."

The city of Yates Center will use a $42,200 Community Facilities Grant to purchase emergency response equipment for the city's fire and police departments. This project will enable the city to purchase safe, up-to-date equipment to ensure the continued safety of its emergency and first responders and the nearly 1,500 community members that they serve. This civic improvement is made possible because of the partnership with Yates Center, which is contributing $14,152.
