Ciresi announces $36,000 grant for Sanatoga Fire Co.

HARRISBURG, June 18 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi on Thursday presented a $36,000 state grant to Sanatoga Fire Co. in Lower Pottsgrove Township.

The Department of Community and Economic Development grant will help them pay for a new compressor for their self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) station.

“I’m proud to have helped the Sanatoga Fire Company find state funding for their compressor,” said Ciresi, D-Montgomery. “The award will support the important work of the company and its members, whose dedication to our community provides us peace of mind and protection. This state investment will ensure modern equipment needed to continue the high-quality emergency services we are fortunate to rely on.”

“We are thrilled to announce that last week we received a $36,000 grant from the state of Pennsylvania, via Rep. Joe Ciresi, for the replacement of our compressor to fill our SCBA cylinders – which was purchased and well used over 10 years ago and is at the end of its life cycle,” Sanatoga Fire Co. wrote on its Facebook Page. “This grant takes a huge financial burden off of us, and allows us to allocate those funds to other upgrades and projects around the station. We sincerely thank Rep. Joe Ciresi for his continued support of emergency services and volunteer fire companies in his district.”
