HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) is encouraging area fire companies and ambulance services to apply for the 2017-18 Fire Company, Emergency Medical Service Grant Program.

Grants may be used for construction or renovation of a unit’s station, the purchase or repair of equipment, training or debt reduction. The maximum grant amount is $15,000 for fire companies and $10,000 for volunteer ambulance services. Career ambulance companies can apply for the grants, so long as they are designated as a municipality’s primary EMS provider.

Since its inception, the program has provided nearly $5 million in much-needed funding to fire and ambulance companies in Cameron, McKean and Potter counties.

A total of $30 million will be awarded through the program, which is funded through state gaming proceeds. The application period will remain open through Oct. 20. For more information, visit Causer’s website at and click on “Fire, Ambulance Service Grants.”
