    Default Volunteer Fire Assistance Grant Available through NYSDEC

    I posted the same message in the Grants forum, but figured it worth posting in our NYS forum as well. For those that haven't heard, applications for the Volunteer Fire Assistance Grant administered by NYSDEC are due by May 15, 2012. More information can be found at:

    Fire departments will receive 50/50 matching funds, up to the amount of their $1,000 grant award, for the purchase of firefighting equipment. As an example, a fire department awarded a $1000 grant would need to expend $2000 on their project to receive the $1000 grant award. Fire departments must provide half the cost of the project being funded.

    Only expenses directly related to fire suppression are eligible for funding [purchasing portable pumps, portable backpack pumps, hand tools, hose, light-weight fireproof clothing (Nomex), hard hats, turnout gear, personal protective equipment, portable radios, generators and dry hydrants.]

    If your department qualifies, it's a very easy application to fill out.

    And well worth the time. We've gotten the grant twice over the years which has greatly boosted our wildland equipment inventory.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.
