    Question Funding

    I am captain of a medium-sized, rural, volunteer department. Our department is considering purchasing a thermal-imaging camera. The problem is funding. We have considered fund-raising, but most of the money we raise is used for our equipment. We barely get by as it is. I need information on any grant programs that may be available. Any information on any type of grants would be very helpful. Thanks a lot and stay safe!!!

    Sounds like a great idea, should raise a lot of money. Hope more states will consider it.

    Good Luck, Be Safe
