DHS announces round 8 of FY 2010 SAFER awards

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today the eighth round of awards for the Fiscal Year 2010 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Grant (SAFER).

The SAFER (Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response) Grant was created to provide funding directly to fire departments and volunteer firefighter interest organizations in order to help them increase the number of trained, "front-line" firefighters available in their communities.

The goal of SAFER is to enhance the local fire departments' abilities to comply with staffing, response and operational standards established by NFPA and OSHA (NFPA 1710 and/or NFPA 1720 and OSHA 1910.134 - see for more details). Specifically, SAFER funds should assist local fire departments to increase their staffing and deployment capabilities in order to respond to emergencies whenever they may occur.
