SOMERSET – Sen. Pat Stefano (R-32), chair of the Senate Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, is hosting a public hearing on Tuesday, Oct. 12, from 1-3:30 p.m. at the Connellsville Township Volunteer Fire Department, 905 Fireman’s Lane, Connellsville.
The hearing will focus on Senate Bill 698, which would allow counties to create countywide public safety authorities for firefighting and/or emergency medical services (EMS). Rather than replacing volunteer and career fire and EMS companies, authorities would exist to support them and their work.
Speakers will represent four panels: introduction to the topic, local government, fire and EMS.
