n Monday, Florida Department of Management Services (DMS) Sec. Jonathan Satter announced almost $860,000 in grant awards to Citrus, Franklin, Gulf, Jackson, Sumter, Walton, and Washington Counties through the E911 State Grant Program.
Since January, DMS has awarded more than $6 million in funds to Florida counties to modernize Florida’s public safety communications systems.
“The E911 State Grant Program and the Rural County Grant Program help counties make the necessary investments they need to enhance their local 911 systems,” said Satter. “These grants are an even more critical resource for rural counties in disaster-impacted areas to build effective and reliable public safety communication systems for their communities.”
