Fire Department Grant Resources
Budget cuts are impacting many fire departments across the country, making access to grant funding a necessity. Grants are a great way to acquire additional funding for equipment and services that exceed your fire department’s operational budget. Securing proper funding allows you to provide a safe work environment for employees and helps ensure public health and safety. Grants can help pay for EMS equipment, new fire apparatus, safety equipment, or provide funding for additional staff.
However, securing grants for your agency isn’t always an easy process. Emergency Reporting Fire & EMS records management software makes it easy to pull the data required to apply for grants and strengthen your case for more budget. To help your department succeed, we’ve created a free guide explaining how to take advantage of your ER software when applying for grants, as well as our top grant writing tips. We’ve also put together a list of useful fire department grant resources. Check them out below:
