Local Fire, EMS Squads to Share $170,000 in State Gaming Proceeds, Day Says
HARRISBURG – More than $170,000 in state gaming proceeds will benefit 13 fire and ambulance companies in the 187th District in Lehigh and Berks counties, said Rep. Gary Day (R-Lehigh/Berks).

The funding is part of the Pennsylvania Fire and Volunteer EMS Grant Program, which allows local organizations to use the money for a variety of uses, including the construction or renovation of a fire company or ambulance service’s primary structure; purchase or repair of firefighting, ambulance or rescue equipment; training; or debt reduction.

“This very popular grant program has enabled first response organizations from all around the 187th District and our Commonwealth to upgrade their equipment, pay off trucks, renovate their garages or meet basic expenses, such as heating or insurance,” Day said. “We have many dedicated men and women willing to give up so much of their time when our community is in need, and this program allows them to have a little bit of breathing room in their budgets so that they can continue to be there in an emergency. I applaud all of our volunteers with our fire and EMS organizations for the tasks they undertake each and every day in their service to us.”

The following fire and EMS companies in the Lehigh County portion of the 187th District to receive grant funding include:

 • Cetronia Ambulance Corps Inc., $7,444.
 • Cetronia Fire Company No. 1, $14,284.
 • Community Fire Co. No. 1 of North Whitehall Township, $12,899.
 • Community Fire Company of New Tripoli, $14,284.
 • Fogelsville Volunteer Fire Company, $13,453.

 • Neffs Volunteer Fire Company, $14,284.
 • Weisenberg Volunteer Fire Department, $13,176.
