Lancaster County municipalities get over $3.3 million in state funding for volunteer fire companies; Columbia gets $49,902.43

Lancaster County's volunteer fire companies will get a share of more than $3.34 million in funding through Pennsylvania's municipal pension program.

"This crucial funding will help more than 1,850 volunteer firefighter relief associations to provide equipment, training and insurance for Pennsylvania's volunteer first responders," Auditor General Timothy L. DeFoor in a news release Wednesday. "At a time when many volunteers are spending more time raising money than fighting fires, these state funds are more important than ever."

Each of Lancaster County's 59 boroughs and townships will receive a portion of the funds.
