Sonney Announces $182,930 for Local Fire, Ambulance Companies
1/31/2018
HARRISBURG – Rep. Curt Sonney (R-Erie) today announced that 18 area fire and ambulance companies located in the 4th Legislative District are set to receive $182,930 in state grants under the Fire Company and Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant Program.

“Our volunteer firefighters and emergency services personnel do an incredible job serving our communities – and they often do it on a shoestring budget,” said Sonney. “These grants go a long way in helping our volunteer organizations afford the equipment and training they need to properly and effectively do their jobs, which is why I have always supported this grant program.”

Funding from the Fire Company and Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant Program can be used for construction or renovation of a company’s station, the purchase or repair of equipment, training or debt reduction.

• Brookside Volunteer Fire Company (fire) – $13,386.
