Wolf: $50 Million in Grants Available to Support Fire and EMS Companies Negatively Affected by COVID-19 June 04, 2020center_img Press Release,  Public Health,  Public Safety Governor Tom Wolf announced today that the Office of State Fire Commissioner will be working to enact recent legislation to provide $50 million in direct financial relief to fire and emergency medical service (EMS) companies negatively impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.“Since we began taking action to curtail the spread of COVID-19, our state’s fire and EMS companies have seen record-breaking call volume and fewer opportunities to raise funds,” Gov. Wolf said. “These grants will go a long way to support their heroic efforts amid a very difficult public health crisis that has created a financial burden for many of these companies.”“It has become a struggle just to keep the lights on for far too many of the companies that protect our communities,” State Fire Commissioner Bruce Trego said. “I am pleased that our office can help get these funds out to the companies most in need.”Of the $50 million in funding set aside for this new program, $44 million will be made available to fire and rescue companies and the remaining $6 million will go to EMS companies. Though the legislation took immediate effect, the Office of State Fire Commissioner must now establish the protocols for application, review and disbursement of grant funds.In the coming weeks, detailed information about the program and instructions on how to apply will be available online at the Office of the State Fire Commissioner’s website. Companies are advised to check back regularly for updated information.last_img read more

first_imgGovernor DeSantis made it official, Palm Beach County will begin a five-step entry into Phase Two reopening on Tuesday. Theaters and bars inside restaurants will be able to open first. In person learning in schools will follow after the school board, county commission or the Governor decides when to reopen brick and mortar schools…could take a week or more.Despite Palm Beach County Schools Superintendent Donald Fennoy objection, Palm Beach County commissioners agreed Tuesday to ask Gov. Ron DeSantis to move the county to Phase 2 by Tuesday, September 8th. The governor approved the measure.Commissioners also recommended Tuesday that the school board vote to postpone in-person classes on its own, a suggestion that the school board’s chairman dismissed as politically unfeasible.In doing so, the school board gave control of school-reopening to the county commission.If the school board wants to delay classes further without risking state penalties, it may have to place its hopes in PBC Mayor Dave Kerner once again.Kerner says he will make the pitch on the school board’s behalf and ask Governor DeSantis personally if he would let the county’s schools open a week later than September 14th.“I said, ‘Let me see if I can make that happen,’ ” Kerner recalled telling Fennoy. “I’m trying to get the best of both worlds here.”last_img read more
