Energy Transfer has granted the Chester Heights Fire Company $20,503.58 to aid in the purchase of equipment to enhance the department’s firefighting capabilities.

Energy Transfer is one of the largest and most diversified energy logistics companies in the country, with approximately 3,000 miles of pipeline infrastructure and gathering systems located in Pennsylvania.

“This grant came at a time when it is becoming harder to maintain the equipment that we use to save lives, because of stricter requirements and rising prices,” said Chester Heights Fire Company President Sam Iannucci Sr. “We are so appreciative of Energy Transfer for recognizing this need and for their continued support of first responders.”

The Energy Transfer First Responder Fund provides grants to help further the primary mission of first-responder organizations, including local fire departments; emergency medical services; county emergency management agencies; county, regional, and local police departments; and other eligible agencies. Grants are determined based on a competitive application and review process, and written applications are accepted on a rolling basis for the following cycle.

“Proper equipment for our firefighters is essential as they protect our lives, home, and property,” said State Sen. Tom Killion. “It’s a privilege to play a key role in assisting Chester Heights (to) obtain the grants to fund new rescue equipment for their fire department.”

“We are proud to offer grants to local emergency response organizations across Delaware County, not only to show our gratitude for keeping our communities safe every day, but to show that we are committed to a long-term partnership,” said Joe McGinn, Vice President of Public Affairs at Energy Transfer. “We look forward to continuing to work closely with Chief Iannucci and the Chester Heights Fire Company, and to offer trainings and other support as needed.”
