Harford County will award local Volunteer Fire and EMS Companies grants totaling $2 million to help pay their expenses due to COVID-19.
Funded by the federal CARES Act, the grants will be distributed to the twelve Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association member organizations in accordance with the Association’s established funding formulas. CARES Act money must be used for COVID-related costs and must be expended by December 30, 2020.
“Our Volunteer (Fire and EMS) Companies are on the front lines of Fire and EMS services in Harford County,” County Executive Barry Glassman said. “We know they have costs due to the pandemic and these funds will help them continue providing high quality emergency services to our community.”
Chris Gibbons, President of the FVFAC stated “The Fallston Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Company greatly appreciates Harford County Government’s granting of this funding source to assist with our expenses related to planning, preparation, and response due to the Covid 19 pandemic.”
