Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Grants application period begins; deadline is Mar. 6, 2015

from IAEM

FEMA announced the opening of the Fiscal Year 2015 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) application, which will close on Mar. 6, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. ET. The SAFER grant program comprises of two categories: hiring of firefighters; and the recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters. To receive a SAFER grant award, applicants must be registered and have up-to-date information in the online System for Award Management. Registration is required of all Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program applicants and awardees. The SAFER grant was created to provide funding directly to fire departments and volunteer firefighter interest organizations to help increase or maintain the number of trained, front-line firefighters available in their communities. The goal of SAFER is to enhance local fire departments' abilities to comply with staffing, response, and operational standards established by the National Fire Protection Association. More information on these standards can be found in the Funding Opportunity Announcement, which is available online, along with the technical assistance tools. more
