Sen. Scavello Announces Grants for Fire and Ambulance Companies in Monroe and Northampton

Harrisburg – The Office of the State Fire Commissioner recently approved approximately $800,000 in grants in support of our emergency services in Monroe and Northampton Counties.

“These grants are an integral part of public safety for our region,” Scavello said.  “We must continue to invest in public safety initiatives, fire and emergency services, including upgrading and improving emergency service communications and interoperability, and most importantly to ensure that our emergency service personnel have the tools they need to focus all of their attention on what they do best—-protecting lives and property across the Commonwealth.”

Grants can be used for repairing, building or renovating facilities, new equipment purchase, debt reduction and training and certification of staff, training and education materials regarding fire prevention for the general public, career departments can also apply for overtime costs associated with backfilling positions while firefighters are attending training.  Each recipient may combine the grant funding for use in up to two categories.
