Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioner Reminds Fire and Volunteer Ambulance Companies to Apply for Grants
HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- State Fire Commissioner Ed Mann is reminding fire and volunteer rescue and ambulance companies that it's not too late to apply for a share in $30 million in service grants.
All fire and volunteer ambulance and rescue companies are eligible to apply for the Fire Company, Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant Program. The funding can be used to build, repair or renovate facilities, for training and certification of staff members, to purchase equipment, or to pay down debt associated with the purchase or renovation of facilities or equipment.
The deadline will remain open until Oct. 19, 2012 at 4 p.m., when the application period will close and applications will no longer be accepted.
"Fundraising takes up a lot of time for these groups, so this grant program is a good opportunity for them to get money they need to carry out their mission," Mann said. "I'd like to see as many eligible companies as possible apply for this funding."
Additional information about the grant program, including contact information for Mann's office and assistance in applying, is available online at www.osfc.state.pa.us or by calling 1-800-670-3473.
