During his weekly Westchester briefing, Latimer discussed:

  • Guest: Town of Ossining Supervisor Dana Levenberg
  • Monkeypox update
  • HERRO Program Update

Close to $250,000 has been dispensed so far to over 50 recipients under Westchester County’s tuition and student loan reimbursement program to help volunteer fire departments and EMS agencies recruit and retain more local heroes.

County Executive George Latimer launched the Higher Education Recruitment and Retention Opportunity (HERRO) program several months ago to help bolster the ranks of volunteer fire departments and EMS agencies. HERRO provides active volunteer emergency services personnel with tuition reimbursement or student loan repayment assistance.
