Search and Rescue team gets grant

Pine Mountain Search and Rescue has received a $899 Search and Rescue grant from the Kentucky Division of Emergency Management (KYEM). KYEM also provides training and materials to search and rescue teams.

KYEM Director Brigadier General John W. Heltzel said, “in fiscal year 2008- 2009, there were 406 reported search and rescue missions throughout the Commonwealth. These numbers indicate a need to prioritize and provide funding to local search and rescue teams so they may continue to provide a much needed service to their community.”
