27 sets of turnout gear & 32 air paks – how did this FD do it?

“I’ve taken your seminar 3 times. Once again I’ve hit a grant, but this time it’s for 27 sets of turnout gear and 32 air paks. Last year I was part of a team that won for a new pumper for the New York State Fire Academy.”

Glen Miller was a student at one of our national grant-writing training classes. As he said, when he immediately put his new skills to work, it made a big difference.

As we head toward summer, it’s also a good time to start the process on getting the training you need to write strong, competitive grants. We have classes coming up this summer and fall, and you can also take our online training anytime. We have 2 online classes:
