Boback Announces Nearly than $375,000 in Grants for Volunteer Fire and EMS Companies
1/22/2014
HARRISBURG – Volunteer emergency response organizations in the 117th Legislative District will benefit from nearly 375,000, thanks to grants offered by the Office of State Fire Commissioner, Rep. Karen Boback (R-Columbia/Luzerne/Wyoming) announced today.

The grants are part of the Volunteer Fire Company and Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant Program created almost a decade ago. Last session, the program was extended and expanded to offer a total of $30 million statewide.

“Our volunteer fire and emergency organizations spend so much time raising money in order to continue helping their communities and they often have a hard time finding ways to pay for the services they provide,” Boback said. “This program is one way the state assists them in making improvements to their facilities, purchasing equipment, providing training, or paying down debt.”

The following is a list of local fire and ambulance companies and the amount of their grant awards:
• Benton Volunteer Fire Company – $12,000 for fire services and $7,091 for ambulance services.
