The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Department of Homeland Security has awarded a Fire Prevention and Safety grant to the Alternative Community Resource Program (ACRP) in the amount of $58,370.00.

With these funds ACRP, in cooperation with school districts, fire departments and civic organizations, will provide smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors for families without such protection. Special smoke detectors for the visually and hearing impaired will be available. In addition, trained ACRP staff will provide home safety assessments for families. The grant provides funds for the purchase of sophisticated carbon monoxide testing equipment that will be used to locate sources of carbon monoxide leaks before those leaks cause harm.

ACRP will be contacting schools, fire departments and civic groups in the coming weeks to begin installations and safety assessments.

As safety inspections are being conducted, ACRP will be able to use other grant funds from Lee Initiatives and United Way to assist low income and elderly homeowners who qualify for the repair of safety issues discovered during home safety assessments.

Please call ACRP at 536-6141 to request information and see if you qualify for assistance. The program includes a five (5) county area (Cambria, Somerset, Bedford, Blair and Clearfield).

Please don’t take you and your family’s safety lightly.
