    Default TIC Funding

    Besides the Fire Act, does any one know if there any other type of grant a department can go after for TIC??

    FM Global is prevention efforts, TICs aren't eligible with them. Wal-mart's Foundation, 500 for Life are other options.

    500 for Life is working in conjuction with Fireman's Fund Heritage Program & the NFFF to award TIC's based on need. They are awarding TIC's using the applications that were sent in last year for the "Into the Fire" TIC program.

    There should be more awards coming from the Fireman's Fund & NFFF. I recieved an email response from a POC, that FF & NFFF were meeting to discuss more awards. No time line though.

    We have just received our Bullard T4 TIC from 500 For Life, very very thankful. I beleive we will make a donation to help someone else get one, its the least we could do for such a generous gift.

    Well that explains the second part of the email; that 20 TIC's had been awarded by 500 for Life. The only announcement was for the first 10 in August by Bullard. I guess 500 for Life doesn't release the names of the winning departments.
