SAFER Grant

DOES YOUR DEPARTMENT HAVE EMPTY LOCKERS? LET US HELP YOU FILL THEM!

The Minnesota State Fire Department Association (MSFDA) has been awarded $1.4 million in funding through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program to improve the recruitment of volunteer firefighters in Minnesota.


We can assist you with marketing and onboarding new firefighters and possibly reimburse you for turnout gear and health screenings for your new hires.  

Step 1 -  Fill out the form below

Step 2 - Sign up for a one-hour training session. The start time for the session is 7:00 pm. We are typically done in 40 minutes. 

Please note:  To assist as many member departments as possible, we are reimbursing for PPE/Health Screens for UP TO two firefighters per department at this time.  NOT ALL DEPARTMENTS WILL RECEIVE REIMBURSEMENT!

 

 If there is funding left at the end of the grant period, we will do a redistribution for those that have submitted for more than two.
