Rep. Meadows Presents Grant Check to Swain County EMS
Washington, D.C. – On Saturday, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) presented an official grant check to the Swain County Emergency Medical Services Team.
The check, worth $24,858, was awarded to the county as part of a federal grant program directed by the Department of Homeland Security. The Swain County EMS team was selected through an application process organized by the DHS to support first responders around the country.
Rep. Meadows released the following statement after the event:
“This is a well-deserved grant for a worthwhile cause, delivered to one of the best emergency service teams not just in North Carolina, but in the whole country. The first responders we have in Swain County are widely recognized as among the most effective, professional, and high-quality groups you’ll find. I know they will put this grant to good use as they continue to serve the people of Swain County in exemplary fashion.
Many thanks to them for their incredible service, and to State Rep. Mike Clampitt and Swain County Commission Chairman Phil Carson for everything they do to support our first responders as well.”
