O’Mara announces $25K grant awarded to Springfield Volunteer Fire Co.

SPRINGFIELD, Nov. 18 – State Rep. Jennifer O’Mara, D-Delaware, today announced that Springfield Volunteer Fire Co. has secured a $25,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

O’Mara said the funding will go toward the company’s general operating support, helping them compensate for lost revenue due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“Volunteers from Springfield Fire Company have always answered the call when people needed them most and saved countless lives. Their work truly is invaluable,” O’Mara said. “My dad was a firefighter, so working with first responders and ensuring that they have the tools they need to succeed is a cause I’m extremely passionate about. I’m especially proud to help bring this funding home during these unprecedented times as the Springfield Volunteer Fire Company recognizes their 100th anniversary.”
