Scavello Announces $1 Million Grant for Construction of Shared West End Emergency Services Facility

Harrisburg – Senator Mario Scavello (R-40) today announced the approval of a $1 million state grant to help pay for the construction of Shared West End Emergency Services Facility in Chestnuthill Township.

Chestnuthill Township proposes to build the two-story Shared Emergency Services Facility at a centrally located site at the corner of Fire House Lane and Route 715.

The new building will serve as an all-in-one facility with space for the West End Volunteer Fire Company, West End Community Ambulance Association, and a Regional West End Emergency Operations Center. The center will serve Chestnuthill, Jackson, Eldred, Ross, Polk and Hamilton townships and provide an administrative backup location for the Monroe County Control Center.

“I am happy to have worked to secure this funding because it serves the public safety interests of not only the West End, but surrounding townships as well,” said Scavello. “This project will deliver public safety services in an efficient manner and ensure that we continue to serve the farthest reaches of Monroe County with quality and timely emergency response.”

The funds were made available through the Redevelopment Assistance Capitol Program, which is administered by the Office of the Budget.  Scavello noted that this is one of many important projects he is working on for the region that will have a lasting impact for communities across the 40th Senate District.
