SCBAs are one of the most essential pieces of firefighter gear ─ and one of the most expensive. Replacing worn or outdated SCBA should be an easy decision but funding the purchase can be a significant barrier to getting the gear that firefighters need to do the job safely.


Here’s what some had to say in a post-event survey:

Tons of information! Everyone seemed extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Very helpful and informative. Skeptical about it being an hour at first, but I wish it had been longer.

Great information and it was articulated very clearly.

It was a great starting point for our ESD.

In this on-demand webinar, FireGrantsHelp experts answered attendee questions and walked through:

  • Where to find grants to fund purchases of SCBAs.
  • How to prepare for the application process.
  • What should be included in the application.
  • How to demonstrate financial need.
  • Where you can find help.
