Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Grant Applications Now Available, Says Moul

Along with Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioner Ed Mann, Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams/Franklin) invites volunteer fire companies and ambulance services throughout Pennsylvania to submit an application for the Fiscal Year 2010 Volunteer Fire Company, Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant Program (VFCVASGP).


The program was created by the General Assembly as Act 10 of 2007 and is funded through state gaming proceeds.


The grants may be used for construction or renovation of a unit’s station, the purchase or repair of equipment, training or debt reduction.  The maximum grant amount is $15,000 for volunteer fire companies and $10,000 for volunteer ambulance services.  A total of $25 million will be awarded through the program.


Grants to eligible fire companies will be contingent on their agreeing to participate in and report information using the Pennsylvania Fire Information Reporting System (PennFIRS).


The online application period will begin Sept. 7 and will remain open until Oct. 21.
