The grant awards include funding for essential equipment, training programs, and facility upgrades. These investments will enhance the readiness and effectiveness of local fire and EMS departments in responding to emergencies and protecting the safety of residents.


Funding comes from an ongoing grant program created by the Legislature and administered by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner (OSFC). All funding comes from the proceeds from slot machine gaming, and no General Fund tax revenue.


Projects eligible for funding includes construction or renovation of a fire or ambulance company facility, purchase or repair of equipment, training, or reduction of existing debt. All companies that apply and meet requirements outlined by OSFC receive funding. Companies must file a grant agreement with OFSC to receive their grants.
