2013 Assistance to Firefighter Grant opens November 4, 2013

We have a brand new system called SPARKGAP that appears to be eligible for funding under the 2013 FEMA Assistance to Firefighters( AFG) grant. Better yet, this system can be used to serve community needs far beyond those of just fire safety.

This program can provide enhanced safety in churches, schools, government offices, healthcare, law enforcement and the list goes on!  If you are involved in firefighting activities, you need to apply for a grant to bring this incredible system to your community!

The  application period opens on Monday, November 4th and will remain open for submission of applications until 5 PM on December 6th 2013.  The matching share ranges from 5% for smaller communities to a high of 15% for larger cities. Additional information on the AFG program is available by clicking here.

SPARKGAP can shorten response time, simplify dispatch operations, automatically report fires, improve incident command, and provide an improved method of getting people when needed.  Better yet, the system has the capability of being expanded as far as you want to go.  You can start with a single community and expand coverage as far as desired!  Additionally, the system can serve a variety of municipal government requirements.  You can learn more by clicking here.  A free Webinar is being offered by the developers of SPARKGAP at 2 PM EST on November 12th. We invite you to sit in if all possible (it will last approximately one hour). You can register by clicking here. If you can't attend, register anyway and a copy of the Webinar will be sent to you at no charge.

Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to do something really special for your community. We have a list of grant writers and grant consultants available if needed.  Just drop us an email for assistance. We should also note that extended payment terms are available to municipalities at extremely attractive rates.  Call us for a quote after review our FREE planner available by clicking here.  Do it TODAY!  In closing, we should note that if you have a budget surplus than needs to be spent by the end of the year, the SPARKGAP program would be a wonderful opportunity of make your community a safer place to live, work, and play.
