Harrisburg -- Monday in Harrisburg, Senator Rob Teplitz and Representative Patty Kim introduced bills to change the way the capital city funds emergency services.

Harrisburg's receiver, William Lynch, was also there to back the bills.

Their legislation would require full reimbursement from the state for fire and emergency services to ensure the community's safety in light of the recent two-day closure of one of the fire departments.

"Obviously aging equipment requires continued service, but this doesn't have to be a problem because we will keep the fire department ahead of the game so when a fire alarm goes off truck are ready to go," explained Rep. Kim (D).

“I am pleased with the efforts of Senator Teplitz and Representative Kim on behalf of the City of Harrisburg,” Lynch said. “I am sure that they will receive bipartisan support since the legislation makes sense and is appropriate for the Capital City.”

The bills would guarantee funding for these services to be a permanent part of the state budget.
