HARRISBURG – Rep. Dave Zimmerman (R-Lancaster) today announced funding for local fire and emergency response organizations through the Fire and Emergency Medical Services Grant Program.

“Our fire and EMS companies are vital to our communities and the people who live and work in them,” said Zimmerman. “Most of these companies are volunteer, and they do a lot with the little they have. Because of this, I know these grants are greatly needed and much appreciated.”  

Funding is being awarded as follows:
Adamstown Fire Co Station 11 - $16,951. 
Caernarvon Fire Company - $16,951. 
Denver Fire Company No. 1 - $16,951. 
Garden Spot Fire Rescue - $29,951. 
Reamstown Fire Company, No. 1 - $10,000.
Reinholds Community Ambulance Association - $15,000.
Reinholds Fire Company - $13,645.

Stevens Fire Company - $13,061. 
Weaverland Valley Fire Department Station 30 - $29,951.
White Horse Fire Company EMS - $15,000.
White Horse Fire Company - $14,423.

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. All companies that apply and meet requirements outlined by the Office of the State Fire Commissioner (OSFC) to receive funding. Companies must file a grant agreement with OSFC to receive their grants.

The funding comes from an ongoing grant program created by the Legislature and administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and OSFC. All funding comes from the proceeds from slot machine gaming, and not General Fund tax revenue.
