Company 9 Secures multiple grants.
Through the hard-work and dedication of several members the Sharon Hill Fire Company was able to secure well over $315,000 of funding. The funds came from both State and Federal Government agencies. From the Pennsylvania's Office for the State Fire Commissioner we recieved close to $12,000 for a new thermal imager to improve our firefighting abilities and allow one thermal imager per Engine the Sharon Hill Fire Co. currently operates. The Second Grant came from the Department of Homeland Security in the amount of $303,000. These funds will be used to purchase a total of 24 sets of complete turnout gear. The new gear will help improve the overall safety of crews and allow us to replace old outdated equipment and met NFPA standards for personal protective equipment.
