  • help stop budget cuts to grant programs

    With all the talk of budget reductions, doing away with SAFER and cutting the AFG budget now is the time to act. Here is a link to a cool tool from National Volunteer Fire Council to contact all of your federal reps. by just putting in your name and address. The letter to them concerning funding is already written, all you have to do is put in your info then submit. Took me about 30 seconds. If you haven't already, please utilize this tool and pass on to all of your dept. members to do the same.

          Sent an email off to my senetors and congresswoman yesterday, not identical to this one but I summed up the same info about AFG & SAFER.

            Flat funding is probably not a possbility. Flat funding with an even AFG-SAFER spilt would be better than what we have now, but this strikes me as an unrealistic position for the NVFC to take.

            It looks like there is support for AFG, and not for SAFER. Personally, I think that is about right. If there are to be cuts (and I think there will be) they should be cuts to SAFER.

              AFG & SAFER Amendment

              Looks like the House wants to restore levels back to 2010 for this year and do away with the cuts.
