NVFC recently asked me to write an article for Fire Engineering on-line to highlight some of the member benefits that can be offered through a SAFER Recruitment and Retention grant. Considering that the SAFER grant application period is currently open, now is a good time to review this information and see if your department can benefit from a SAFER grant.
Applications for the programs have been completed. In the past we had a mass mailing and it went out in a not controlled way So I am asking that if you have a contestant for the program for the 4 groups that they email me to ensure that the proper application is submitted and that the contestant is from the Fire/EMS/Aux groups. We had people that tried to enter and they were not from this group and some were trying to enter that are not affiliated.
