Lebanon County fire companies received more than $630,000 through the 2023-24 Fire Company and Emergency Medical Service Grant Program.

The Fire Company and Emergency Medical Services Grant Program is administered by the Office of the State Fire Commissioner and is available annually for volunteer and career fire companies, emergency medical services, and volunteer rescue squads.

The program makes an annual grant program available for volunteer and career fire companies, emergency medical services and rescue squads. Program funding is generated through slot machine gaming proceeds.

Eligible organizations can apply for grant funding for a combination of up to two projects in categories including construction or renovation of facilities, purchase or repair of fixtures and furnishings, purchase or repair of equipment (including vehicles), debt reduction, training, overtime costs associated with training, recruitment and retention efforts, and public education. The State Fire Commissioner’s staff reviews applications based on applicant and project criteria.
