Local Fire, EMS Companies Receive State Grants, Says Moul
HARRISBURG – Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams) announced today that 12 fire and ambulance companies in the 91st Legislative District have been awarded nearly $282,000 in state grants through the 2023-24 Fire Company and Emergency Medical Services Grant Program. 

“Here in Adams County, we rely heavily on our local firefighters and emergency medical personnel to be there in emergency situations to protect us and our property,” said Moul. “These grants will help them to acquire the equipment and staffing they need.”

The grants may be used for construction or renovation of a unit’s station, the purchase or repair of equipment, training, debt reduction, education and public outreach, as well as staff recruitment and retention efforts. 

This year’s grant recipients are as follows:
