Homeland Security grant to fund bomb squad vehicle to Ocean City, MD.

Ocean City could soon be getting a bomb squad vehicle, along with other items, thanks largely to this year’s Homeland Security Grant.

Special Projects and Grant Coordinator Wayne Pryor presented the Mayor and City Council with the Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 Homeland Security Grant on behalf of the public safety group.

“They are the ones who that really shepherded this grant and figure out how the money is funded, received and we proceed with implementing it,” Pryor said.

The core of the public safety group is comprised of City Manager Dennis Dare, Emergency Services Director Joe Theobald, Police Chief Bernadette DiPino and Fire Chief Chris Larmore.
In his presentation to the council, Pryor reviewed the history behind the Homeland Security Grant that Ocean City receives.

“A lot of things have changed since 9-11,” Pryor said, referring to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2011 and the government’s response to form the department of homeland security.

According to Pryor, the Department of Homeland Security agency Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administered this plan through a state agency called Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), who administer the grant and pass it through to local governments.
