Local Fire Departments Awarded Grants In Pennsylvania American Water’s “Keystone Firefighting Challenge”

What are Facebook votes worth? For Eagle Hose Company Number 1 in Dickson City, Lackawanna County, and Citizens Fire Company Number 1 in Palmyra, Lebanon County, they won grant money to help purchase needed firefighting equipment and training. These two organizations were the top two vote-getters among the 22 fire departments from across the commonwealth that competed in Pennsylvania American Water’s “Keystone Firefighting Challenge.”

During the month of July, Facebook users voted for their favorite fire department via Pennsylvania American Water’s Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/pennsylvaniaamwater). The overall winner Eagle Hose Company Number 1 collected 1,251 votes, and second-place finisher Citizens Fire Company Number 1 received 787 votes out of the total 3,968 votes cast. Eagle Hose Company Number 1 plans to use its $700 grant to offset the cost of a new hydrant assist valve, while Citizens Fire Company Number 1 will use its $300 grant to defray costs for state-certified firefighting training.

“The ‘Keystone Firefighting Challenge’ was a fun and friendly competition, using social media, to engage local fire departments in the communities we serve,” said Pennsylvania American Water President Kathy L. Pape. “We’re proud to help support the purchase of equipment and training for the winning fire companies and grateful for our customers’ Facebook votes of confidence in their important work.”
