Firefighters put themselves on the front lines everyday protecting our communities and acting as first responders in emergencies. To support these heroes, Nest, maker of the Nest Protect Smoke and CO Alarm, and the Leary Firefighters Foundation have teamed up to award two $25,000 grants for new technology and equipment to fire departments in need.
To qualify for the grant, departments will need to be nominated by members of their community. Every vote counts. The 10 departments with the most nominations will become grant finalists and the Leary Firefighter Foundation will award two grants through its formal grant application process. Nominations are accepted on Nest.com from October 5 until midnight PT on October 31.
To spread the word in your community, here are some suggested social media posts:
