Hanover PA, FF LODD

Tragic report out of Hanover (PA) as a Firefighter responding and driving apparatus to a mutual aid working house fire, suffered a medical emergency. The apparatus left the road but no others were injured.

Our sincere condolences to all those affected. Rest in Peace, Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.

2016 Volunteer Fire Assistance (VFA) Grant

March 10, 2016, 01:30:58 AM CCF Administrator

The application period will open March 7 for a grant made available through Section 10(b)3 of the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978 (Volunteer Fire Assistance). All applications must be electronically submitted by 4:00 pm on May 19, 2016. Applications can be found at www.grants.dcnr.state.pa.us, DCNR’s E-Grants website.

Section 10(b)3 of the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978, as amended by the Forest Stewardship Act of 1990, authorizes and directs the Secretary of Agriculture to provide financial, technical and other assistance to state foresters or other appropriate officials in cooperative efforts to organize, train and equip local forces in rural areas or communities under 10,000 population to prevent, control and suppress fires which threaten human life, livestock, wildlife, crops, pastures, orchards, woodlands, farmsteads, or other improvements in rural areas. The key objectives of this program are to save lives and protect property in unprotected or inadequately protected rural areas. Therefore, the selection of the participating agencies must be based on vulnerability and the adequacy of existing fire protection.

This is a cost-share program. Financial assistance on any project during any fiscal year cannot exceed 50% of the actual expenditures including expenditures of local, public and private nonprofit organizations participating in the agreement.

The maximum grant we will consider for the 2016 program is $7,500 ($15,000 total project) per Fire Company.
