Department of Insurance Sends Award Check for New Equipment
RALEIGH - Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Wayne Goodwin announced
that the The Gamewell Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. was awarded a $12,800.00
grant through the 2016 Volunteer Rescue/EMS Fund from the State of North Carolina.
The check will be mailed to Rescue Chief Keith F Owens to be used by this
rescue/EMS organization to purchase needed equipment. 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 Goodwin 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 The Gamewell Volunteer Fire Department, Inc., will use this money to
serve their community even better," Goodwin added. "Thank you, Chief Keith F
Owens, for all of your hard work and thanks to your dedicated staff."
The Gamewell Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. has received a total of $64,090.40
from the Volunteer EMS/Rescue Fund in the past 27 years since the program began.
The General Assembly created the Volunteer Rescue/EMS Fund in 1989 to help
volunteer units raise money for equipment and supplies. The grant funds must be
matched dollar-for-dollar, up to an approved amount, by monies raised locally to
purchase necessary equipment. Since the program's inception, the Department of
Insurance has distributed $29,628,435.63 to rescue and EMS squads across the
state.
