Peifer Announces Local Fire, Ambulance Grants
1/28/2015
HARRISBURG – Fire and emergency response organizations in the 139th Legislative District have been awarded more than $390,000 in state grants, Rep. Mike Peifer (R-Pike/Wayne) announced today.

“This grant program helps to support the organizations and individuals who have made the selfless decision to risk their lives and give of their time for the benefit of their communities,” Peifer said. “I have great respect and appreciation for the important work that they do.”

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.
