Nelson Confirms More Than $278,000 in Fire and Ambulance Grants Coming to the 57th District
1/26/2018
HARRISBURG – Twenty-three fire and emergency medical service companies serving the 57th Legislative District have been awarded more than $278,000 in Fire Company and Emergency Medical Service grants, said Rep. Eric Nelson (R-Hempfield).

“We owe a debt of gratitude to our emergency responders for their immeasurable service in keeping our communities safe no matter what time of day or weather condition,” Nelson said. “This is the least the state can do to help ensure this essential emergency coverage continues. I am pleased to see this money returning to our area in a way that benefits and helps to protect every person in the 57th Legislative District.”

The grant money comes from state gaming proceeds as required under state law. Funding can be used to build, repair or renovate a fire company or ambulance service’s primary structure; purchase or repair firefighting, ambulance or rescue equipment; participate in training seminars and workshops; or pay down the organization’s debt. To receive a grant award, an organization must first apply.
