State Rep. Bud Cook (R-Washington/Fayette) announced recently that 23 area volunteer fire and ambulance companies throughout the 49th Legislative District have qualified to receive approximately $287,657 from a grant program administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner.

“This grant program has provided millions of dollars over the years to help our volunteers better equip their stations, pay down debt or afford capital projects,” said Cook. “These men and women dedicate countless hours to training to keep their rescue and response skills honed and this grant program is just one way in which we can assist their efforts to keep us safe.”

All funding comes from the proceeds from slot machine gaming, and not General Fund tax revenue. 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 the local fire and ambulance companies and the amount of their grant awards:
