Kevin Kanehl, Fire Marshal, Armada Township Fire Department, Michigan

Just to keep you updated on the success your training program has had, we got awarded a micro-grant earlier this year for new nozzles, and we received the 1199a for $110,000 towards a new brush truck. We’re 2 for 2 in the 2016 AFG period. This makes 6 AFG awards and 2 SAFER awards since 2011.

Additionally, I helped another nearby department achieve a $691,000 SAFER award.

This would not have been possible without your course.

I want to thank you for giving me the tools to bring in around $1.5 million for my own department and a neighboring department. These departments both serve 10,000 people, so department size is no excuse not to get awarded. I do not know of any other training programs out there than can turn a $450 investment into over $1 million in return.
