Krueger announces grant for South Media Fire Co.

FOLSOM, Nov. 1 – South Media Fire Co. has been awarded a $125,000 state grant to help replace the fire company’s roof and install a new generator, state Rep. Leanne Krueger announced today.

The funding comes through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

“I am pleased to see this grant awarded to help support the South Media Fire Co.,” said Krueger, D-Delaware. “This fire company provides life-saving service to our community, and it’s critical that we ensure they have the facilities and equipment necessary to do this important work. I was happy to support this request for funding and will continue to do whatever I can to help our first responders.”

The fire company’s current roof has reached the end of its useful life, and the existing generator is no longer working and is not repairable. South Media Fire Co. is an all-volunteer company serving residents of Nether Providence Township and Rose Valley.
