Counties get $1.4 million in anti-terrorism funds

Posted: Updated:

Counties all over Oregon have been awarded a total of $1.4 million to prevent terrorism.

The State Homeland Security Program awarded the funding to 21 counties. It will go toward planning, organization, equipment, training and exercise capabilities.

"The grant money will help equip communities throughout Oregon with the equipment and resources needed for terrorism and all hazard emergencies," said Martin Plotner, director of the Oregon Military Department's Office of Emergency Management.

In June, grant application workshops were held throughout the state explaining the program and what projects and programs qualified for these funds.

A peer review group of state, local and county emergency professionals screened and evaluated all grant submissions.
