$12,020.00 Grant Awarded to The Gamewell Volunteer Fire Department, Inc.
Department of Insurance Sends Award Check for New Equipment
RALEIGH - Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Mike Causey announced that the The Gamewell Volunteer
Fire Department, Inc. was awarded a $12,020.00 grant through the 2019 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 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 The Gamewell Volunteer Fire Department, Inc., will use this money to serve their community even better,"
Causey 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 $95,474.20 from the Volunteer EMS/Rescue Fund in
the past 30 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 $33,885,461.21 to rescue and EMS squads across the state.
