Find Out If Rescue/EMS Agencies In Your Area Received A Grant

More than $1.5 million dollars in grant funding has been awarded to rescue and EMS organizations across the state, including more than 150 agencies in Eastern Carolina.

The funding is provided by the Volunteer Rescue/EMS fund, which was created by the North Carolina General Assembly to financially assist North Carolina's volunteer emergency personnel.

Rescue organizations may apply for up to $25,000 in dollar-for-dollar matching grants per fiscal year, and rescue organizations having cash assets of less than $1,000 may apply for non-matching grants up to $3,000.

"Rescue and EMS organizations selflessly serve our communities large and small, and their budgets don't always match the magnitude of their responsibilities," Insurance Commissioner Goodwin said. "It is important that our state helps support them by providing the means by which they can obtain the best equipment to do their jobs safely and effectively."

Eighteen organizations in Eastern Carolina received rescue grants.

Some of the largest include more than $11,000 to Pinetown Rescue and EMS in Beaufort County, as well as $25,000 each to rescue organizations in Wilson, Northampton and Dare counties.

More than 140 organizations in Eastern Carolina received fire grants.

Some of the largest include Bath Volunteer Fire Department in Beaufort County at $30,000, Belhaven Fire and Rescue Department in Beaufort County at $22,209, Griffins Township Fire Department in Martin County at $24,040, Hookerton Volunteer Fire Department and EMS in Greene County at $30,000 and Pumpkin Center Volunteer Fire Department in Onslow County at $23,571.
