HARRISBURG – Fire and emergency response organizations in the 50th Legislation District, which includes all of Greene County and portions of Washington County, have been awarded more than $400,000 in grants from the state, Rep. Bud Cook (R-Washington/Greene) announced today.

“Our fire and EMS companies are vital to the health and safety of our communities,” Cook said. “They stand ready to put their lives on the line to help others. These grants are designed to help ensure they can continue this important mission.”

The grant funding comes from an ongoing program created by the Legislature and administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner (OSFC). All funding comes from the proceeds from slot machine gaming, and not General Fund tax revenue. 

Following is a list of local fire and ambulance companies and the amount of their grant awards. All companies that apply and meet requirements outlined by OSFC receive funding. Companies must file a grant agreement with OFSC to receive their grants.
