Federal Grants to Local Fire Departments Offer Up-to-Date Equipment and Training to Stations Large and Small


Paradigm Shift:  
                     Redirecting grants and funding from 
                     community law enforcement, and fire departments 
                     to community 501(c)(3) nonprofits.

           How:   -Establish a volunteer fire station,
                       -Utilize FEMA 'free' online learning classes,
                       -Attend Program Manager and Train-the-Trainer
                          CERT (Community Emergency Response Team)
                          FEMA courses in Emittsburg, MD
                       -Establish a CERT team specifically for your community
                       -Have volunteer fire station as training, and education
                          facility for FEMA, fire and other training,
                       -Have volunteer fire station designated as a polling\voting
                          location in your community,
                       -Unlimited possibilities

New York, NY -- The Atlantic City Fire Department has some 250 full-time firefighters and six fire stations serving a southern New Jersey population of 40,000.  The department received last month a federal Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) of almost $490,000 to replace personal protective equipment ravaged by Hurricane Sandy and years of on-the-job use.  The local share of the grant brought the total to $543,400.
