Volunteer fire and emergency response organizations in the Alle-Kiski Valley have been awarded grants from the state.

Funding comes from the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Office of the State Fire Commissioner. The money comes from proceeds from slot machine gambling, said state Rep. Eli Evankovich, R-Murrysville.
