Thirteen Area Fire and Ambulance Companies Awarded State Grants, Says Simmons
HARRISBURG – Thirteen fire and ambulance organizations in the 131st Legislative District have been awarded nearly $165,000 in funding through the 2016-17 Pennsylvania Fire Company and Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant Program, Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Montgomery/Northampton) announced today.

“These state funds help to ensure the safety of citizens and the continued operation of the volunteer fire and EMS organizations that sustain our communities during emergencies,” Simmons said. “The money awarded under this successful program will help ensure that the emergency responders we depend upon will be there when we need them.”

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.

Grant awards can be used for construction or renovation of facilities, purchase or repair of equipment, training or debt reduction.
