Frisco Fire Receives SAFER Grant

(August 24, 2018) The Frisco Fire Department has been awarded a $1,560,305 SAFER Grant.

The Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant is administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). 

This grant will provide partial funding for 9 firefighters that will staff Fire Station 9.

The SAFER grant was created to provide funding directly to fire departments to help them increase or maintain the number of trained “front line” firefighters available in their communities. 

The goal of SAFER is to enhance the department’s ability to comply with staffing, response, and operational standards that are established by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA). The grant is awarded through a competitive process.

“We are excited about receiving this grant and the opportunity that it brings to the City and its citizens by placing these additional firefighters on duty," Fire Chief Mark Piland said.

"It also provides a mechanism to save the city tax dollars.”
