Tobash Announces Grants for Volunteer Fire, Ambulance Companies in Berks, Schuylkill Counties
1/6/2012

HARRISBURG – Rep. Mike Tobash (R-Schuylkill/Berks) today announced 49 volunteer fire and ambulance companies in the 125th Legislative District have been awarded more than $430,000 in grants from the state.

 

“Our volunteer emergency service providers are simply outstanding, sacrificing their time to help people in need and protect public safety,” Tobash said. “At no time was that more evident than when our region was struck by severe flooding last year.

 

“These grants will help our fire and ambulance companies continue their mission of service to our communities,” he added.

 

The grant money, which comes from state gaming revenues, may be used for construction or renovation of a fire or ambulance company facility, to purchase or repair equipment, to provide training, or to reduce existing debt. The $25 million program is administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner.
