    Since we don't have a problem with recruitment and retention, and since hiring new firefighters is a very low priority with this year's program guidance, we are not putting in a SAFER application this year.

    We have the Hiring Grant done and at 100%, however still a little off on the R&R, trying to get my hands around the Turnout Gear Request and why we would need to do an after grant addendum to cover this cost, also it is written in the grant to give a gift card should this be changed to just reflect the award amount and not use gift card?

    We went for an aggressive membership recruitment campaign (Brochures, Mailers, signs, banner and newspaper ads). We also went for 2 signs (1 in front of the station, the other 2 blocks down the street from the stattion where the street the station is located and the main road into town). We also asked for funding to get internet access and a company website running, Member of the month program started and running.

    This was the first time I have done a SAFER Grant and this is also the first time my Fire company has done one, So we will see. Good luck to everyone. Now its time to get ready for the next grant(s).
