UPPER NAZARETH – Emphasizing the importance of public safety, Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Northampton) announced that $1.25 million was recently awarded to the Upper Nazareth Fire Department for its building expansion project. The grant will be used to help build a four-bay garage for station vehicles and a complete second floor.
“The Upper Nazareth Fire Department does so much to serve our local community and keep people safe. This funding is crucial in allowing our volunteer firefighters to provide the services we so deeply rely upon,” said Emrick.
“We are incredibly grateful for this grant funding, and we appreciate Rep. Emrick’s extensive work in helping to secure it. Over the past decade, our population has increased more than 30% and this money will be vital in allowing our department to grow and continue serving the residents of Upper Nazareth Township,” said Fire Chief Jeff Fassl.
This project was funded through the state Department of Community and Economic Development.
