HARRISBURG – Rep. Greg Rothman (R-Cumberland) announced today that local fire companies and EMS services in Cumberland County will receive grants from the Office of the State Fire Commissioner. The grants are funded through state gaming proceeds and applications are still open until the end of May.
“We are grateful for the life-saving services that our local fire and EMS organizations provide, and these grants will help offset any expenses they incur to keep us safe,” Rothman said. “I encourage all of our fire companies and EMS servicers to apply for a grant.”
The following fire companies and EMS providers in the 87th Legislative District have been awarded grants:
• Camp Hill Fire Company Number One, Fire Company, $13,821.77.
• East Pennsboro Ambulance Service, EMS, $7,155.22.
• Enola Fire Company 3, Fire Company, $25,486.70.
• Hampden Township EMS, EMS, $7,155.22.
• Hampden Township Volunteer Fire Company, Fire Company, $14,646.43.
• Northeast Fire and Rescue CPNY, Fire Company, $37,316.57.
Each department must log in to their grant application on the Office of State Fire Commissioner website and print the grant agreement signature pages. Once they have obtained the appropriate information from their financial institution and signed the agreement, they must mail it back to State Fire.
To date, State Fire has received approximately 70 percent of the grant agreements for the 2018-19 grant year. Those who have not yet submitted their grant agreement are asked to do so by the end of May to ensure there is sufficient time to process the payment, and allow for them to purchase the project and submit the final report by the Sept. 3 deadline.
