ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — Local counties will be receiving money from the state to support emergency response operations. 

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Friday that the state has awarded $10 million in aid to local counties to help make improvements to their 911 response and emergency service dispatch operations. 

Fifty-seven counties including Monroe, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, and Yates will be receiving a piece of the $10 million dollar grant. 

The money can be used on day-to-day expenses, technology upgrades, and new services like text-to-9-1-1 messaging.
