Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik announced that she secured $1,575,000 in funding for improvements to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office.

“I am proud to announce that I secured $1,575,000 for improvement projects at Montgomery County Sheriff's Office in this year’s appropriations process. This funding will be used to create an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program in Montgomery County by purchasing ambulances equipped with lifesaving equipment and constructing an EMS facility. This project would provide life-saving services to the community as Montgomery County currently does not have an EMS program,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. 

“We are very appreciative of Congresswoman Stefanik and her support. I look forward to bringing this award to our County Executive and County legislature for consideration, with the goal of providing the highest quality EMS service possible to our constituents. An award of this magnitude is certainly a difference maker for a rural county like ours,” said Sheriff Jeffery T. Smith.
