SAFER GRANT INFORMATION FOR VOLUNTEERS

SAFER Grant update – The Burlington Fire Protection District received a SAFER grant from FEMA in 2014 in the amount of $487,064.  This grant is for the recruitment and retention of volunteer firefighters and will last for 4 years.  The monies pay for one full time recruiter along with uniforms, personal protective equipment, and education costs for the new recruits.  As of today Burlington has recruited 23 firefighters with some training at the Northern Kentucky Fire Recruit Academy and some taking Emergency Medical Technician class through St. Elizabeth Healthcare.  At the end of these initial classes the groups will swap in order to become cross-trained in both Fire and Emergency Medicine.  

This grant has already allowed the District to improve its combat force and has come at a perfect time.  It is our hope to bring these men and women into the service and train them well so that they can serve their community or use this program as a spring board to a career in Fire and EMS.  If you are interested in this program please contact Greg Schultz at gschultz@burlingtonkyfire.org.
