KISKATOM — A $50,000 state grant from the office of State Senator Michelle Hinchey will fund the construction of a medical transport helicopter landing pad for the Kiskatom Fire Department, announcing fire officials on Monday.

The grant from the State and Municipal Facilities Capital grant program will allow the city to construct a helipad at the Kiskatom Fire Station. The heliport will allow State Police and Albany Medical Center medical evacuation helicopters to airlift Greene County patients to medical facilities in the event of an emergency.
