HARRISBURG - Rep. Donna Scheuren (R-Montgomery) today congratulated several fire and emergency medical services (EMS) grant recipients of the 147th Legislative District. Funding granted will support emergency response’s ability to provide medical support and emergency relief.

“Our emergency response teams work around the clock to provide life-saving support to our communities and these grants will go a long way to help sustain them while they deliver vital services to us,” Scheuren said. “Each recipient of the fire and EMS grants are well deserved. I look forward to continuing to support them and what they do.”

The funding amounts are contingent on the recipients filing their grant agreements with Office of State Fire Commissioner.
