NC Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Mike Causey makes several stops in Hyde

On January 24, NC Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Mike Causey visited Hyde County, making several stops including the Mattamuskeet Senior Center, the Swan Quarter Volunteer Fire Department, NC Farm Bureau and the Ponzer Volunteer Fire Department.

Causey presented checks to the Swan Quarter and Ponzer Volunteer Fire Departments for $30,000 from the NC Fire Grants and Relief Fund program. The Volunteer Fire Department Fund was created to financially assist volunteer emergency personnel. Through dollar for dollar matching fund programs, the Department of Insurance assists fire departments to purchase related equipment and to make capital expenditures.

Hyde County matches the $30,000 NC Fire Grants with up to $10,000 in local funds to support all volunteer fire departments in the county. Last year, all six volunteer fire departments participated and were awarded grant funds ranging from $22,494 to $30,000 and each were matched with local funds at a 3:1 ratio. A total of $172,342 in grant awards were received across the six volunteer fire departments in Hyde County.
