HARRISBURG – More than $91,000 in grant money awarded this week in the 106th District will support fire companies and emergency medical services as they address building projects, purchase or repair equipment, conduct training, or reduce existing debt, according to Rep. Tom Mehaffie (R-Dauphin).

Established by the Legislature, the Fire and Emergency Medical Services Grant Program is administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner. All funding comes from the proceeds generated by slot machine gaming.
“Our first responders do so much for our communities and rely heavily on charitable giving to fulfill their mission. These grants, which do not use tax dollars, are a way for them to address needs that affect their day-to-day work,” Mehaffie said.

Recipient companies in the 106th District include:

Grantville Volunteer Fire Co., $15,590
Hershey Volunteer Fire Co., $16,757
Hummelstown Chemical Fire Co. No. 1, $14,034
Londonderry Fire Co. No. 1, $14,423
Lower Swatara Volunteer Fire Department, $15,590
Middletown Volunteer Fire Department, $15,000
