Pennsylvania Office of the State Fire Commissioner
Governor Tom Wolf announced today that OSFC will be awarding $50 million worth of grant funding to fire, rescue, and EMS across the commonwealth to offset expenses related to COVID-19.
KVFD was awarded $33,428. We thank life member Jared Dalmas. He has been instrumental in all grants we have received over the years.
“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, our office has remained open to provide the necessary resources that our fire service and EMS personnel need to fulfill a critical public safety role throughout the Commonwealth,” said Fire Commissioner Bruce Trego. “Departments have been exceptionally patient during this process, as our office has worked through changing federal guidance dictating how these dollars can be spent.”
Grant recipients should expect to receive further communication from OSFC in the coming weeks. A full list of fire companies receiving grant awards, along with the recently updated federal guidance, can be reviewed at http://bit.ly/COVID-Fire-Grant
