Justice firemen get equipment grant

The Justice Rural Fire Department has been awarded a $25,903 grant to help it buy equipment, according to Fire Chief Kelly Harris.

Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Mike Causey made the announcement last week, saying that the money will come through the 2020 Volunteer Fire Department Fund from the state of North Carolina.

The check will be mailed to Chief Harris to be used by the Department to purchase needed equipment, Causey said.

The equipment is purchased using matching funds and must be approved by the Department of Insurance Office of State Fire Marshal.

"Fire and rescue organizations protect our communities large and small across North Carolina, but sometimes their budgets don't grow with their responsibilities," Commissioner Causey said. "Our emergency service personnel should be supported with the best equipment and supplies needed to do their jobs correctly and safely."

"I know the Justice Rural Volunteer Fire Association, Inc., will use this money to serve their community even better,"

Causey added. "Thank you, Chief Kelly Harris, for all of your hard work and thanks to your dedicated staff."

Justice Rural Volunteer Fire Association, Inc. has received a total of $322,938.51 from the Volunteer Fire Department Fund in the past 32 years since the program began. The General Assembly created the Volunteer Fire Department Fund in 1988 to help volunteer units raise money for equipment and supplies.

The grant funds must be matched dollar-for-dollar for an amount approved up to $30,000, unless the department receives less than $50,000 per year from municipal and county funding, in which case the applicant shall match $1 for each $3 of grant funds up to $30,000.
