HARRISBURG – House Republican Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) Thursday applauded several grants awarded to fire and emergency medical services (EMS) organizations in southern Lancaster County.

“Our fire and EMS personnel are the backbone of our community and they sacrifice their lives and well-being to help their neighbors. Providing state investment into these critical community assets helps ensure they have what they need to be prepared to take on the tough job of keeping our communities safe,” Cutler said.

The grants awarded in the 100th District include: 

Bart Township Fire Company - $15,395.81.
Christiana Community Ambulance Association Inc. - $10,000.
Christiana Fire Company No. 1 Inc. - $16,951.99.
Quarryville Fire Company No. 1 - $15,979.38.
Paradise and Leaman Place Fire Company - $14,228.68.
Strasburg Fire Company No. 1 - $14,617.72.
Robert Fulton Fire Company - $13,839.63.

These grants were made available through the Fire and Emergency Medical Services Grant Program created by the General Assembly and administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner. All funding comes from the proceeds from slot machine gaming, and not General Fund tax revenue. 

Projects eligible for funding include construction or renovation of a fire or ambulance company facility, purchase or repair of equipment, training, or reduction of existing debt.
