Bartolotta: Volunteer Fire, EMS Companies Awarded State Grants

HARRISBURG — Seventy-five state grants totaling more than $900,000 were announced today for volunteer fire, EMS and ambulance companies in the 46th Senatorial District, according to Sen. Camera Bartolotta (R-46).

The grants are awarded as part of the Volunteer Fire Company and Volunteer Ambulance Company Grant Program, which helps eligible organizations fund facility renovations and/or construction, equipment purchases, debt reduction and training.

“Pennsylvania has a long history of volunteerism dating back to the creation of the nation’s first volunteer fire company in 1736,” Bartolotta said. “As today’s volunteers continue this rich tradition of protecting their friends and neighbors, these grants will help ensure they have the tools and training they need to perform their duties.”
