New Equipment Helps Questa First Responders Keep the Community Safe

  • Local Champion: Village of Questa
  • Date Funded: August 9, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $9,892

For more than two years, the Village of Questa did not have any public safety officers. But now that the police department has been reestablished, officers have been evaluating their ability to respond to major incidents and realized they lack some key first-responder equipment. With that problem in mind, the village reached out to LOR and brought forward a solution for improving public safety. With LOR’s help, the police and EMS departments were able to purchase roadside flares, traffic-safety cones, vehicle extinguishers, portable lighting, and trauma kits—ensuring that Questa residents have access to important resources during emergencies.
