Grants For Fire Companies; Workshop Scheduled Monday

Grants For Fire Companies; Workshop Scheduled Monday

firetruckA workshop to help emergency services agencies throughout Potter County to qualify for government grants will be held on Monday, April 19, in Coudersport. The session is scheduled for 6:30 pm at the Potter County Emergency Operations Center, off Rt. 872 in east Coudersport.

Potter County Department of Emergency Services is sponsoring the free workshop to assist local agencies in taking advantage of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. Funds are available to help cover a wide variety of expenses. Emergency Management Coordinator Glenn Dunn encourages each volunteer fire department in the county to consider taking advantage of the program. Those planning to attend are asked to call 814-274-8900 or send an email to potterema@zitomedia.net.

Meanwhile, through a separate program, about $667,000 is available to help Pennsylvania’s rural communities guard against the threat of fires in forested, undeveloped and unprotected areas. Funds are supplied by the U.S. Forest Service.

Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry is accepting grant applications until May 20. Top priority will be given to projects that include the purchase of wildfire suppression equipment and protective clothing. Grants also may be used for purchasing mobile or portable radios, installing dry hydrants, wildfire prevention and mitigation work and training wildfire fighters.

The funds will cover up to half of the project’s cost. Maximum grant that will be considered from any fire company is $7,500. Purchases made after Oct. 1, 2009, may be eligible. For more information, call 717-787-2925.
