    Just submitted another R&R app...#156

    I'm scratching my head wondering if the final tally will be this low or if a flood of apps will come in over the next two days.

    And after you get through all those hoops - can you fund the firefighter when the grant is over as per required?

    JS: just like the R&R requests, you will have to demonstrate how you fail to comply with NFPA 1710/1720 and why your proposed project (i.e., hiring 1 firefighter) will bring your department into compliance.

    You'll need a good justification as to why 1 firefighter will help you meet some aspect of NFPA 1710/1720, OSHA 1910.134, or at least 4 qualified firefighters on the first out apparatus.

    You need to address these items in the order listed below. Also review and respond to each of the items on page 26 of the PGD (program guidance document) found at http://www.firegrantsupport.com/docs...ERGuidance.pdf


    The Narrative Statement (project description) for the Volunteer Recruitment and Retention Activity must include the following:

    * A statement that describes how the applicant will use the grant funds. The project description should include the following: how the recruitment of new volunteer firefighters and/or retention of current volunteer firefighters within the department or organization will meet identified operational needs; a description of the specific benefit these firefighters will provide for the fire department(s) or community; a description of the recruitment and/or retention problems or issues the department has identified; how the activities being requested address those identified needs; specifics about the recruitment and/or retention plan; and, if the application includes a regional request, specify which of the activities are for the regional request and which activities are exclusive to the host applicant. Your description should also include whether you are seeking to comply with NFPA 1710 or 1720 as identified in the current SAFER Program Guidance.

    * A statement regarding how the community and current firefighters (or geographic area of concern for an eligible organization) are at risk without the needed firefighters, and to what extent that risk will be reduced if the applicant is awarded.

    * An explanation of the applicant’s inability to address the need without Federal financial assistance.

    * If you were unable to fully address this information in question 14 of the Request Information section of your application, please complete your response regarding how the applicant will ensure, to the extent possible, that they will seek, recruit, and hire members of racial and ethnic minority groups and women to increase their ranks within their department. This should include an explanation of the efforts your organization has instituted and how successful those efforts have been.

    What are your issues in recruiting and retention?

    How do you KNOW these are the issues?

    How will money fix those issues?

    What kind of turnout do you have on calls, and what do you need to satisfy NFPA?

    There are hundreds of things you can do with a SAFER grant, but without those
    answers it is hard to say what ones to use.

    Without those answers, you are probably not going to be successful.

    To decide on what ideas there are, you first need to know what issues the department is experiencing. Is the department having a recruitment and/or retention issue? The only way to answer these questions is to survey current and past members. Once you determine the why's then the solutions can be found to correct the issues.

    here's the part about Regional Requests from the Program Guidance:

    h. Regional Requests
    Requests for recruitment and/or retention activities having a regional impact (i.e., an impact beyond the immediate boundaries of the applicant’s first-due area) will receive a higher competitive advantage than applications benefitting only one applicant. An applicant may apply for support of both a regional initiative and its Department’s internal needs on one application.

    Please note: Only Recruitment and Retention of Volunteer Firefighter Activities qualify for regional project requests. The Hiring of Firefighters Activity is not eligible to be requested as a regional project.
