Turnout gear is used on every alarm and is the core of every fire department. Your department simply cannot exist without it. The Assistance to Firefighters Grant program provides the best means to cover these expenses. However, because of their popularity, turnout gear requests are among the most competitive activities of this grant program.
To assist you in this endeavor, FireRescue1 and FireGrantsHelp have built this free PPE project guide to provide you with information and suggestions to formulate your application for turnout gear and give you the most accurate and up-to-date information on this grants program.
