PA American Water Awards $50,000 In Grants To Local Fire Companies

Pennsylvania American Water Tuesday announced 68 emergency service organizations across the Commonwealth received grants totaling approximately $50,000 through its annual Firefighting Support Grant Program.
The company awards the grants to support local fire departments and emergency services in purchasing protective gear, lifesaving equipment, firefighting apparatus and training materials.
“We are proud to support the critically important service provided by our communities’ emergency responders,” said Pennsylvania American Water President Jeffrey L. McIntyre. “At a time when funding and volunteers are stretched thin at many fire departments, our Firefighting Support Grants enable us to partner with and assist the dedicated men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our customers’ homes and businesses.”
Pennsylvania American Water awarded grants ranging from $430 to a maximum of $1,000 to the following fire departments and emergency service organizations.  Click Here for a list of grants awarded.
A panel of Pennsylvania American Water employees, including current and former fire chiefs and firefighters, reviewed more than 160 applications that were submitted.
Since launching the grant program in 2009, Pennsylvania American Water has donated more than $450,000 to help almost 600 fire departments and emergency service organizations across the Commonwealth.
