From PA State Fire Commissioner Tim Solobay,

We are still waiting on 367 fire and ambulance companies (as of April 12) to send in their grant agreement paperwork.
We will include the list in this column and also will have it posted on Facebook .
These have been ready for over 2 months now, going on 3 months and we don’t want you missing out on the funds you requested that are sitting here for your department.
These are the funds you applied for back in September and October and is part of the $30 million Annual Fire and Ambulance Grant Program funded thru the casino funds.
Please get that necessary paperwork in so you have the proper time to not only make the purchases you applied for but also have the time to get the closeout information in prior to next year’s program which will begin in early September.
On the same line I believe we are down to less than 60 departments that haven’t signed up or made the arrangements with the statewide mandatory reporting requirement that is also part of the legislation that makes the grants possible.
