SAFER ideas and awards from FY2008
What is getting funded? What shouldn't we ask for?
We have seen successes in advertising costs; billboards, newspaper adds, local signs, direct mail pieces,
Retention projects; embroidered jackets (initially denied then reinstated), AD&D insurance, gift cards stipend for completion of training.
We were denied; LED signs and radio advertising

SAFER for 2006
We were approved for hiring 1 firefighter in 2006 and recuirtment and retention of volunteers as well.
They approved $1,000 per year to send out quarterly newsletter to citizens. ( I wish we had doubled that amount.) all citizens that recieve it like it. We have gotten 3 new members because of this.
Paying each members dues in the state fire fighters pension fund. ($15.00 per member per month).
Paying each new member $100. bonus for completeing NPQ firefighter 1 training.
Physicals were deleted because of being available in AFG.
