Boback Announces Over $180,000 in Grants for Volunteer Fire and EMS Companies
HARRISBURG – Rep. Karen Boback (R-Lackawanna/Luzerne/Wyoming) today announced that over $180,000 in state grants has been awarded to fire and emergency response organizations in the 117th Legislative District.

“Our fire and EMS companies work incredibly hard to keep our community safe, and I am so pleased to see that they are receiving this much-needed funding. This grant money will ensure that our volunteers have the resources and training needed to continue providing their valuable services,” said Boback.

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.
