Local Fire Department Awarded State Grant to Fight Wildfires, Says Heffley
10/9/2018
HARRISBURG – A Carbon County volunteer fire department will benefit from a state program that funds equipment purchases and training to battle wildfires, according to Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon). Franklin Township Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 in Lehighton was awarded a $10,000 grant through the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

“This funding will be put to good use by ensuring these local volunteers have the resources and training necessary to fight wildfires safely and effectively,” said Heffley.

Local firefighting forces in communities with fewer than 10,000 residents qualify for the aid, which is used for training and equipment purchases directly related to fighting brush and forest fires. Grants may be used for purchasing mobile or portable radios; installing water supply equipment; wildfire prevention and mitigation work; training wildfire fighters; or converting and maintaining federal excess vehicles.

A total of 132 volunteer fire companies were awarded $646,891 to help guard against the threat of wildfires in the state’s forests and other undeveloped areas.
