Everett Says Local Fire Companies, EMS Services to Receive Grant Funding
3/19/2019
An earlier release did not include comments from John Yingling, Director of Lycoming County Department of Public Safety.

HARRISBURG – Rep. Garth Everett (R-Lycoming/Union) announced today that local fire companies and EMS services in Lycoming and Union counties will receive grants from the Office of the State Fire Commissioner. The grants are funded through state gaming proceeds and applications are still open until the end of May.

“We rely on the incredible men and women of our local fire companies and EMS providers to keep our families safe,” Everett said. “I’m thankful to see so many of them in Lycoming and Union counties be supported by this program.”

Lycoming County Director of Public Safety John Yingling also expressed his appreciation for efforts to assist the first responder community.

“The Fire and EMS service grant program greatly assists our local fire departments and Emergency Medical Services agencies with funds to purchase essential equipment or to assist with debt reduction,” said Yingling.

Both career and volunteer first responders dedicate many hours to training on essential skills and response to incidents in our communities. Grant offerings assist those agencies with important public safety initiatives and help sustain the operations, especially when time for fundraising efforts may detract from training and incident response. The dedication and efforts of the local first responders are greatly appreciated.”

Each department must log in to their grant application on the Office of State Fire Commissioner website and print the grant agreement signature pages. Once they have obtained the appropriate information from their financial institution and signed the agreement, they must mail it back to State Fire.

To date, State Fire has received approximately 70 percent of the grant agreements for the 2018-19 grant year. Those who have not yet submitted their grant agreement are asked to do so by the end of May to ensure there is sufficient time to process the payment, and allow for them to purchase the project and submit the final report by the Sept. 3 deadline.
