(HOLYOKE) - Congressman Richard E. Neal will join Superintendent of the Holyoke Soldiers' Home Paul Barabani to officially announce a $305,000 federal assistance grant.

The grant will be used toward the cost of fire alarm and detection system improvements at the Soldiers' Home. The upgraded system will be state-of-the-art and combines fire protection and information management so that every floor, and every room in the Holyoke facility is secure.

"This was truly a state and VA partnership in working together on behalf of our Veterans and their patient safety in identifying the best system, the best technology, and the best knowledge to deliver the highest quality fire alarm system," said Barabani.

"I am proud to stand with the Superintendent marking this critical funding that will further ensure the safety of our proud veterans right here in Holyoke," said Neal.

The overall design and installation of the new system was carried out through a partnership with the Holyoke Fire Department.
