FDs in 3 Pa. counties awarded $425K in grants


The Bradford Era

Fire and emergency response organizations in Cameron, McKean and Potter counties have been awarded more than $425,000 in grants from the state, Rep. Martin Causer, R-Turtlepoint, announced Monday.

“As our emergency response organizations continue to struggle financially, these grants are sure to be put to good use,” Causer said. “As always, I am grateful for the men and women who work so hard to protect our communities and am pleased we can continue to support them with this valuable funding.”

The 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 not General Fund tax revenue.
