Congressman Pete King Presents Grant to Amityville Fire Department

Volunteer Firefighters are a vital and essential part of our communities. As your Congressman in Washington, I am proud to be Co-Chairman of the Congressional Fire Caucus. Here on Long Island I work closely with our Fire Departments and assist them in seeking to obtain federal Homeland Security grants. Recently I was pleased to inform the Amityville Fire Department that it had received a federal grant for $137,000. Meeting with the Department's Chiefs, I thanked them and their Department for the outstanding job they do in protecting the people of Amityville and assured them of my continued support.


With all of the partisan political struggles that get media attention every day, it is important to remember that America and the world face constant critical and possibly existential threats.

Even more than Islamist terrorism, there is the severe threat of cyber attacks from Russia, Iran, China and international criminal enterprises. At the annual "Worldwide Threats" hearing, the leaders of America's Intelligence Community emphasized the necessity of protecting our critical defense, intelligence and industrial critical infrastructure from governmental and non-state hackers. As we saw in the 2016 elections there are the propaganda and surreptitious attacks on our democratic process.

Of course threats from a nuclear armed North Korea, a potential nuclear armed Iran, an expansion China and a resurgent Russia remain as do the ever deadly Islamist terrorist threats from ISIS, Al Qaeda and their offshoots and splinter groups.

We must face the reality that we live in an extremely dangerous world which is why it is vital that the Trump Administration continue to rebuild our military and we make sure that our intelligence agencies receive all the funding and all the moral support they need and deserve to protect Americans at home and American interests around the world. God Bless America!!
