Question: IABPFF. How many voluteer fire stations are in communities of color, or underserved communities?



  • Why aren't there more volunteer fire stations in urban and rural communities of color, even underserved communities?
  • Funding
    • How would it be funded?
    • Does DHS provide any funding opportunity?
  • Training and Job Opportunities
    • Would volunteer opportunities for youth in high school be provided?
    • Is training similar to paid firefighters?
    • Where does the training take place?
    • Would this training and volunteer opportunity lead to a paid firefighter position?
  • How are they established
    • Are they established based on Population?
    • Are they established based on response time?
  • Some other criteria?
