Support for Volunteer Firefighters and EMTs Impacted by Sandy
November 14, 2012
Volunteer firefighters and EMTs who were impacted by Hurricane Sandy or other state- or federally-declared disaster can apply for assistance through the NVFC’s Volunteer Firefighter Support Fund. The Fund provides a stipend of $250 to help with basic needs in the aftermath of a disaster.
To receive a stipend, you must be an active volunteer firefighter, rescue worker, or EMS provider; be from an NVFC member state as an individual or department member of the state association; live (or have housing) in a state- or federally-declared disaster area; and have incurred an uninsurable loss in excess of $5,000.

The NVFC donates all administrative costs associated with managing the fund, so all donations go directly to helping volunteer first responders in need.
