Rep. Bud Cook (R-Fayette/Washington) has announced that 27 volunteer fire and ambulance companies throughout the 49th District have qualified to receive $383,946 from a grant program administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner.

“I am thrilled to announce that 27 volunteer fire and ambulance companies in our district have received funding,” said Cook. “Funding for our local fire and ambulance companies is critical as volunteers are fewer and fewer.”

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.
