    Default Federal funds

    The emphasize has been placed on providing large amounts of federal money to regional strike teams. It is the local department where the tradgey has happened that is going to make the biggest difference in the successful out come of the emergency. Most of this money should go to the local fire departments. The money should by-pass city hall; as the fire departments take the biggest hit when budget cuts come around. A share of all the federal money the police departments are able to get would be good. The 10 to 1 or more funding difference between the police and fire departments need to be narrowed. It is the fire department that has to get down and do the dirty work necessary to save lives.

    If you go to the state forum's page and go to Pennsylvania, there's a fund already set up through Commerce Bank just for first responders thanks to Congressman Curt Weldon. There's an address there for those who don't live in his area.
