St. Clair County is getting a financial boost for its emergency responders.

The county will receive 10-thousand dollars in grants from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, which will provide for upgrading and maintaining equipment that allows different agencies to communicate with one another.

The grant money comes from the September 11th Fund which is supported by part of the fee charged for state's "America Remembers" license plates.

Police Chief Roy Joachimstaler has remembrance of his fallen brethren, "They didn't know what they were getting into that day, like many of us when we go to work in the morning, but they stepped up to the plate and did what they had to do".

9/11 responders far from NYC seek compensation

NEW YORK (AP) — They weren't exposed to anywhere near the same level of ash, grit and fumes.

But some emergency workers who responded to the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania countryside on 9/11 are signing up for the same compensation and health care benefits being offered to New Yorkers who got sick after toiling in the dust of the World Trade Center.

Federal officials say at least 91 people from the Pentagon and the Pennsylvania sites have applied for payment from a multibillion-dollar fund for people with an illness related to the attacks.

There's little medical evidence that those responders were exposed to unusual environmental hazards or are getting sick in large numbers, but officials are urging some responders to enroll as a precaution.

More than 24,000 applied for compensation for ground zero work.
