Your Action Needed to Help Save AFG and SAFER!

Has your department received much-needed funding for equipment or recruitment from the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) and Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grants? These critical fire service grants are in danger – if Congress does not act, AFG and SAFER grants will cease to exist on September 30.

We need your help. Rep. Mike Bost (R-IL) and Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) are leading a letter asking the leadership in the House of Representatives to include the reauthorizations for AFG, SAFER, and the U.S. Fire Administration in the upcoming “must pass” funding bill. It is crucial that as many Members of Congress as possible sign this letter so that House leadership knows these reauthorizations are widely supported. Your Member of Congress needs to hear from you to get them to sign this letter!

Please save AFG and SAFER by using this Action Alert to contact your Member of Congress and ask them to sign Rep. Bost’s and Rep. Pascrell’s letter by the February 23 deadline. It only takes one minute of your time and a couple clicks to use this alert to make your voice heard.
