Simmons Announces State Grants for 13 Area Fire And Ambulance Companies
2/3/2015
COOPERSBURG – Thirteen fire and ambulance organizations in the 131st Legislative District have been awarded more than $160,000 in funding through the 2014-15 Pennsylvania Fire Company and Ambulance Service Grant Program, Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Montgomery/Northampton) announced today.

“We are grateful to these groups for their dedication to serving our communities,” said Simmons. “I am pleased we are once again able to provide some additional state support that will allow them to continue protecting our lives and property.”

The funding comes from an ongoing grant program created by the Legislature and administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner. All grants are generated from slot machine gaming proceeds, and not general fund tax revenue.

Projects eligible for funding include construction or renovation of a fire or ambulance company facility, purchase or repair of equipment, training or reduction of existing debt.
