HARRISBURG — The House on Sept. 21 unanimously approved legislation that would ensure fire companies that choose to merge will continue to receive fair funding through the state’s Fire and EMS Grant Program.

Under current law, fire companies that merge each receive their own state grant allocations for a period of up to 10 years. After that, they are treated as a single entity by the program.
