2 First Responder Grants Clients Win $817,109 in Round 3 AFG FY 2017 Fire Grant Awards

Missouri’s Wolf Creek Fire Protection Association, Farmington, and Central Crossing Fire Protection District, Shell Knob, won a combined $817,109 during Round 3 awards from the FY 2017 Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) program.

Both departments have worked with First Responder Grants to develop applications that put them in the winner’s circle.

Wolf Creek Fire Protection Association will use their $660,728 toward a Regional Request for PPE. Central Crossing Fire Protection District will put their $156,381 Operations and Safety fire grant toward a combination of training and PPE.

AFG fire grants are administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

“Regional requests can be a crucial way for departments to band together and access grant funding from sources such as AFG,” says Kurt Bradley, Senior Grants Consultant at First Responder Grants. “Replacing and updating PPE is a mission-critical way for departments to maintain readiness and safety.”
