Fri, Feb 15th 2019 05:15 pm

Congressman Chris Collins announced the application period for the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response grant program. Administered through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the SAFER grant program is designed to help local fire departments and emergency management service providers to increase or maintain the number of trained, “frontline” firefighters available in their communities.

“The SAFER grant program provides funding assistance to our local fire departments and EMS providers in order to help recruit new members and ensure that current members are up to date on their training,” Collins said. “I encourage all NY-27 fire departments and EMS providers to apply for this program.”

FEMA will begin accepting applications from eligible departments from 8 a.m. Friday, Feb. 15, through 5 p.m. Friday, March 22. Interested applicants with further questions or those seeking letters of support from Collins are asked to call his Geneseo district office at 585-519-4002.
