We are delighted to announce the availability of TWO grant programs for fire departments. The first is the 2008 (yes, you read it right) Fire Prevention and Safety Grant (FP&S). Normally, this grant comes out in the fourth quarter. This year, it missed 2008 completely and was announced on February 2, 2009 with a closing date of March 6, 2009. If you want to go for this one, you're going to have to hurry!
Details are available on the FEMA web site at www.firegrantsupport.com. We have a special package for rapid fire reporting in churches, schools, public buildings (including fire stations), and more that should qualify for funding. If approved, this system could make your community safer for those you serve. For additional information, just give us a call at 800.489.2611. Information on the Assistance to Firefighter grant program (AFG) is also available on this Blog site. These programs only come around once a year. Don't miss your opportunity to do something great for your community and your department!
