Grants to USA and territories fire departments, tribes, and tribal organizations to increase the number of firefighters available in communities throughout the nation. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to assist local fire departments with staffing and deployment capabilities.
The objectives of the SAFER grant program are to assist local fire departments with staffing and deployment capabilities to respond to emergencies and assure that communities have adequate protection from fire and fire-related hazards. Local fire departments accomplish this by improving staffing and deployment capabilities, so they may more effectively and safely respond to emergencies. With enhanced staffing levels, recipients should experience a reduction in response times and an increase in the number of trained personnel assembled at the incident scene.
Each activity has specific priorities and objectives. For additional details, please see: https://www.fema.gov/sites/default/files/documents/fema_FY-2020_SAFER-NOFO.pdf#page=48
