Millard Announces Local Fire, Ambulance Grants
HARRISBURG – Fire and emergency response organizations in the 109th Legislative District have been awarded more than $240,000 in state grants, Rep. David Millard (R-Berwick) announced today.

“This grant program helps to ensure that these vital organizations are equipped and able to continue serving their local communities,” Millard said. “It is a great opportunity to provide for and support those who make it their mission to serve and protect us every day.”

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 funding comes from the proceeds from slot machine gaming, and not general fund tax revenue.

Every emergency service organization that completes the application process receives funding. 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.
