On Wednesday, January 15, 2020 the Fire Company received official notification from the Pennsylvania State Fire Commissioner's Office that two grants have been awarded to our organization totaling $23,440.47 through the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency.
The Modena Fire Company was awarded $14,248.09 for our Fire Grant and $9,192.44 for our Ambulance Grant. The Fire Grant will go towards the purchase of new personal protective equipment (turnout gear) and Debt reduction on Engine 37-1. The Ambulance Division grant will help with upgrading the now 25 plus year old fire alarm systems.
This grant program is a great asset to all Fire and Ambulance companies throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and we would like to thank State Fire Commissioner Bruce Trego and his staff for their assistance in providing this program annually to our volunteers.
