The application window for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grants opens today, July 29, 2013, and the deadline is Friday, August 30, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. EST. The SAFER grant program has nearly $321 million to assist fire departments in FY 2013.
SAFER grants provide funding directly to fire departments and volunteer firefighter organizations to help them increase or maintain the number of firefighters and other first responders available in their communities. The goal of SAFER is to enhance the ability of local fire departments to comply with staffing, response, and operational standards.
