Diamond Announces Grants for Volunteer Fire and Emergency Services Companies
HARRISBURG – Several regional volunteer fire and emergency service companies in the 102nd Legislative District have been awarded grants by the Commonwealth to aid in their mission of protecting lives and property, Rep. Russ Diamond (R-Lebanon) said today.

“These first responders continually give of their time and talent to help residents in a time of need. The grants help these groups in many ways, and I am grateful that we have this program in place to help get that done.
