HARRISBURG – Rep. Tim O’Neal (R-Washington) today announced $163,844 in 2023-24 Fire Company and Emergency Medical Services Grants were awarded to fire companies throughout the 48th Legislative District.
The grant program was initiated in 2000 and is open to volunteer and career fire companies, emergency medical services and rescue squads in Pennsylvania. Grant awards can be used for construction or repair of facilities, purchase or repair of equipment, debt reduction and training. The funding amounts are contingent on the recipients filing their grant agreements with the Office of the State Fire Commissioner.

“Our emergency responders work tirelessly every day to keep us safe,” O’Neal said. “This grant program helps reduce the fundraising burden. I have proudly supported the program as it is another way that gaming money is sent back to our area.”
