Barletta Announces Federal Grants for Four Local Fire Departments

Share

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) announced that four local fire departments in Pennsylvania’s 11th District will receive over $282,000 through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) program.  The fire departments that are receiving these funds are located in Shippensburg, Mount Carmel, Newville, and Hanover Twp.  Barletta has been a longtime supporter of the AFG program, having made repeated requests to House Appropriations Committee leaders for continued support and funding.

“Our fire departments and emergency responders are the first line of defense in our neighborhoods when disaster strikes,” Barletta said. “When I talk with volunteers and employees at fire departments across the 11th District, I consistently hear about the funding and personnel challenges they face.  These grants will go a long way toward ensuring that the residents in our local communities – and their homes and businesses – are protected.  We must do everything we can to help people be safe in our communities, and I remain proud to support funding for our local fire departments.”

The primary goal of the AFG program is to meet the firefighting and emergency response needs of fire departments and non-affiliated emergency medical service organizations.  Since 2001, the AFG program has helped firefighters and other first responders to obtain critically needed equipment, protective gear, emergency vehicles, training, and other resources necessary to protect the public and emergency personnel from fire and related hazards.

For more information on the AFG program, please visit https://www.fema.gov/welcome-assistance-firefighters-grant-program.  Additionally, interested organizations may contact Mike Shay at Rep. Barletta’s Hazleton office at (570) 751-0050 or by email at Michael.Shay@mail.house.gov.
