CITY COUNCIL AGENDA
The Green River Fire Department is requesting permission to apply for the AFG SAFER grant. The SAFER Grant application period is currently open. The SAFER Grant is used to bring fire department staffing to adequate levels to ensure the best response and safety to emergency response personnel. This grant cycle lasts for three consecutive years and will cover a percentage of the employees’ salary. The first two years will be at 75% funded from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), then in the final third year the DHS will cover 35%. After that it will be up to the City to maintain that position at its full cost.Suggested Motion: I move to authorize the Green River Fire Department to apply for the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response Grant with the Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters Grant.
