$336,000 In Grants Headed To Venango County Fire, Ambulance Departments

February 13, 2013

About $336,000 in state grants are headed to fire companies and ambulance services in Venango County through a program funded by state gaming proceeds.

The money includes grants totalling $25,000 for both the Reno and Utica Fire Departments for both firefighting and ambulance response.

Fire departments in Oil City, Franklin, Rouseville, Pleasantville, Rocky Grove, Polk, Oakland Township, Cooperstown and Chapmanville will all get $15,000 while companies in Cherrytree, President, Rockland and Sandycreek Townships will receive grants of nearly that same amount.

Other grants include $11,580 to the Emlenton Volunteer Firemens Association, $9,792 to the Emlenton Area Ambulance Service, $10,000 to the Seneca Volunteer Fire Department and Relief Association, $9,865 to the Clintonville Volunteer Fire Department and $10,000 to Community Ambulance Service.

The office of state Representative Lee James says the grant program, expanded by the General Assembly last year, is administered by the Pennsylvania Office of Fire Commissioner within the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.  The grant funding now provides up to $30-million each year to assist with the construction or renovation of fire and ambulance facilities, the purchase or repair of equipment, training, or reducing existing debt.
