Fayette and Washington counties’ fire and EMS companies, represented by Rep. Bud Cook, each received 25 one-time state grants to assist with extra expenses resulting from the COVID-19 public health emergency.

A total of $50 million was made available through the Office of State Fire Commissioner (OSFC) to provide direct financial relief to first responders in Pennsylvania impacted by the pandemic. These funds are to be used to supplement operational expenses incurred by the lack of opportunities for fundraising and inability to create revenue due to compliance with measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Fire and EMS services are critical to the health and safety of every community,” said Cook. “I’m thrilled these grants are being distributed to help our heroes. I hope it can help ease the financial burden they’ve faced this year.”
