– Seven fire and emergency medical service companies serving the 88th Legislative District have been awarded almost $89,000 in Fire Company and Emergency Medical Services grants, said Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland).
“Firefighters and emergency medical services personnel work hard every day to protect our community’s public health and safety,” Delozier said. “We should never, ever take what they do for granted. These grants will help them help us and make the burden to raise funds a little lighter.”
The grant money comes from state gaming proceeds as required under state law. Funding can be used to build, repair or renovate a fire company or ambulance service’s primary structure; purchase or repair firefighting, ambulance or rescue equipment; participate in training seminars and workshops; or pay down the organization’s debt.
Those fire and emergency medical services companies that serve the 88th District who applied for the grant were awarded in the following amounts:
- Citizens Fire and Rescue Company No. 2 – $12,649.
- Lisburn Community Fire Company – $13,386.18.
- Lower Allen Township Fire Department – $14,307.66.
- New Cumberland Fire Department – $13,017.59.
- New Cumberland Fire Department Emergency Medical Services – $7,037.40.
- Washington Fire Company No. 1 – $14,676.26.
- West Shore Bureau of Fire – $13,754.78.
The 88th Legislative District in Cumberland County includes Lower Allen and Upper Allen townships and the boroughs of Lemoyne, Mechanicsburg, New Cumberland, Shiremanstown and Wormleysburg.
