Ciresi presents $50,000 in state funding to North End Fire Company for facility improvements

POTTSTOWN, April 20 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, on Sunday presented $50,000 in state funding to the North End Fire Company No. 1 in Pottstown.

The PA Department of Community and Economic Development grant Ciresi secured will allow facility improvements to the fire company, specifically for a new shower room and a new training room.

“The officers, career staff and members are extremely humbled for the efforts that Joe Ciresi and his staff dedicated in making every attempt to help the North End,” said Jeff Swider, treasurer of the North End Fire Company. “Joe presented the North End with a $50,000 check for capital projects to our fire house. Joe, thank you for stepping up and keeping your word to stand by and help the North End! We cannot thank you enough!”

“On behalf of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, this grant recognizes the importance that local fire companies play in critical public services,” Ciresi said. “Our fire companies do a lot to keep us safe with limited resources. I will always look for ways to connect them to state funding to meet their needs, so that they can continue doing their outstanding work for the Pottstown community.”
