Schuylkill County Fire and EMS Organizations Receive Thousands in Grants


Schuylkill County fire companies and emergency medical service providers have been awarded thousands in state grant funding for 2018-2019.

The funding is part of the Fire Company and Emergency Medical Service Grant Program, which is administered by the Office of the State Fire Commissioner and annually provides grants for volunteer and career fire, emergency medical services and rescue companies.

Grants can be used for construction or renovations to fire or ambulance company facilities; purchase or repair of equipment; staff training and certification; and debt reduction for equipment purchases or facility construction and repair.

No tax dollars are used for the grant program, which is funded by proceeds from slot machine gaming, state Rep. Kerry Benninghoff, R-Bellefonte, said in a news release on Monday. Centre County agencies within Benninghoff's 171st district were awarded more than $136,000 in grants.

“The members of these organizations serve and protect the rest of us, often risking their own lives to do so,” Benninghoff said. “I am grateful for their steadfast, 24-hour commitment to our community, and congratulate them on these awards.”
