Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Grant Application Deadline Extended, Says Day

HARRISBURG – Rep. Gary Day (R-Berks/Lehigh) would like to inform volunteer fire companies and ambulance services that the deadline to apply for the 2011 Volunteer Fire Company and Volunteer Ambulance Service Grant Program (VFCVASGP) has been extended to Friday, Nov. 4.

The original grant deadline has been extended two weeks to 4 p.m. on Nov. 4, due to the extensive flooding that has affected many residents statewide.


The 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 volunteer fire companies and $10,000 for volunteer ambulance services. A total of $25 million will be awarded through the program.


Grants to eligible fire companies will be contingent on their agreeing to participate in and report information using the Pennsylvania Fire Information Reporting System (PennFIRS).

For more information, visit Day’s website at and click on “Fire and Ambulance Grants.”
