Pa. grant program funds local departments


The Public Opinion (Chambersburg, Pennsylvania)

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Rep. Todd Rock, R-Mont Alto, announced Tuesday that 12 local emergency medical services providers and volunteer fire companies serving the 90th Legislative District have been awarded approximately $101,770 from a grant program administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner.

"Franklin County's first-responders are definitely not exempt from the hardships of the ongoing economic recession, especially when it comes to individual fundraising" said Rock. "Now more than ever, this guaranteed funding is absolutely critical in helping these brave men and women extinguish any necessary financial fires so that they are properly equipped and prepared to respond to actual emergencies."

Specific recipients and grant amounts awarded are as follows:

• Marion Volunteer Fire Company, $11,367.68, and Emergency Medical Services, $4,916.86.

• Mercersburg Montgomery Peters and Warren Fire Company, $11,367.68, and Emergency Medical Services, $4,916.86.

• Mont Alto Volunteer Fire Company, $10,994.25, and Ambulance Association, $4,916.86.

• Blue Ridge Mountain Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad, $10,433.84, and Emergency Medical Services, $4,671.02.

• New Franklin Volunteer Fire Department, $10,994.25.

• Mechanics Steam Fire Engine and Hose Company, $10,906.62.
