Fire company awarded grants
The Rossiter Volunteer Fire Company has been awarded $45,135 in grants for operations and safety by the Federal Emergency Management Agency under the Department of Homeland Security, according to an announcement from U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa.
“Pennsylvania’s firefighters endure risk and sacrifice every day to keep their community safe,” said Casey in a press release Saturday. “This money will help provide Indiana County’s firefighters with the resources they need to ensure their safety and the safety of those they serve.”
Funds are awarded through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program, which aims to strengthen the health and safety of the nation’s first responders and those they serve.
