DHS announces round 20 of AFG awards for Fiscal Year 2011

WASHINGTON — The Assistance to Firefighter Grant (AFG) Program of the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency has announced the 20th round of awards from the Fiscal Year 2011 Assistance to Firefighters Grants application process.

The primary goal of the AFG is to meet the firefighting and emergency response needs of fire departments and nonaffiliated emergency medical service organizations by enhancing their capabilities with respect to fire and fire-related hazards.

Since 2001, AFG has awarded more than $4.6 billion to fire departments and other first responders to obtain critically needed equipment, protective gear, emergency vehicles, training, and other resources needed to protect the public and emergency personnel from fire and all other hazards. Additional awards are forthcoming.
