Helm Announces State Grants for Dauphin County Fire And Ambulance Companies
1/24/2014
HARRISBURG – Fire and ambulance organizations in the 104th Legislative District have been awarded nearly $220,000 in funding through the 2013-14 Pennsylvania Fire Company and Ambulance Service Grant Program, Rep. Sue Helm (R-Dauphin) announced today.

“Volunteer emergency responders perform a vital service for their communities,” said Helm. “These state grants will help them stay in operation and I am pleased we are able to provide this additional financial support.”

The funding comes from an ongoing grant program created by the Legislature and administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner. All grants are generated from slot machine gaming proceeds, and not general fund tax revenue.

A total of $30 million in funding was awarded to 2,535 fire and ambulance organizations statewide.

Projects eligible for funding include construction or renovation of a fire or ambulance company facility, purchase or repair of equipment, training or reduction of existing debt.

Following is a list of local fire and ambulance companies and the amount of their grant awards:

• Berrysburg and Community Fire Company – $13,619.
