HARRISBURG – Grant funding will be coming to several hard-working first responder companies in the 88th District under the PA Fire Company and Emergency Medical Services Grant Program, according to Rep. Sheryl Delozier (R-Cumberland). 
Eight companies and ambulance squads in the 88th District are recipients of the grants administered by the Office of the State Fire Commissioner. The money can be used for facility upgrades, equipment purchases or repair, debt reduction, education and public outreach, training, or recruitment and retention.
“Our firefighters and emergency medical service providers make sacrifices daily for our townships and boroughs. Most of our companies are also volunteer run,” said Delozier. “These grants are just one way to show our support for all they do to protect local residents by answering the call of duty.”
Grants awarded within the 88th District are:
New Cumberland Fire Department, $14.563
New Cumberland EMS, $10,000
