October 12, 2020

The West Grove Fire Company will receive two grants, part of $50 million worth of grant funding to fire, rescue, and EMS across the Commonwealth to offset expenses related to COVID-1 announced by Governor Tom Wolf.

The purpose of this funding is to provide much-needed financial assistance to first responders who have found it difficult to keep their operations running due to COVID-19. Of the $50 million in funding set aside for this new program, $44 million will be made available to Fire and Rescue Companies and the remaining $6 million will go to EMS Companies. As stated in Act 26, the money must be used for operational and equipment expenses. Eligible expenses include operational expenses – such as but not limited to:

-Utilities
-Insurance
-Apparatus Repairs/Fuel
-Personal Protective Equipment
-Lost Revenues due to Pandemic Restrictions
-Expenses for cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting of equipment and property or other expenses incurred to prevent the spread of communicable illnesses.

WGFC will be receiving $25,342 for fire services and $15,048 for EMS services. The Fire Company appreciates these grant funds as the organization works through its operations during the COVID pandemic.

“Our fire, rescue and EMS are the first responders often on the front-lines of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Gov. Wolf said. “All these professionals – some working as volunteers – give selflessly to support neighbors and communities. These CARES Act grants can assist in supporting them and their ongoing efforts to keep their neighbors and communities protected and safe.”
