Has your department ever received a FIRE ACT or SAFER program grant?
Now it’s time for you to please just take just one minute to keep that program alive for your and all applying departments. Please share this with your local/mutual aid FD’s, state, and regional fire organizations.
IT’S A BIG DEAL because unless action is taken NOW to save AFG and SAFER, they will EXPIRE as they face a statutory sunset on September 30, 2024 — just a few months from now.
All of the national organizations have collectively been working hard to enact the Fire Grants and Safety Act (S.870/H.R.4090), which would reauthorize AFG, SAFER, and the U.S. Fire Administration, but THE IAFF, IAFC, NVFC, AND ALL THE OTHER MAJOR ORGS NEED YOUR HELP. ACTION REQUESTED, PLEASE:
Please click below for information from CFSI on how to contact your members of Congress, as well as to get talking points for calls and sample letters to send via email. Your action will help ensure the Fire Grants and Safety Act (S.870/H.R.4090) becomes law without further delay.
