New resources for fire services released by NVFC
New NVFC resources are meant to help fire and emergency service departments to meet challenges and awful situations which are quite stressful and disturbing at times for the firefighters.
The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has released several new resources to help fire and emergency service departments meet the challenges of a broad range of situations, including the tragedy of a line-of-duty death, the complexities of writing federal grant applications, adopting environmentally-friendly practices, and working with legislators to advance fire service legislation.
"The NVFC strives to provide needed resources to the fire and emergency services, and we are pleased to release these new guides to help departments navigate through the hurdles they may face," said NVFC Chairman Philip C. Stittleburg. "Our goal is to make these situations more manageable and less daunting for departments and personnel."
The new guides are available for free on the NVFC web site. Resources include:

Fire and Emergency Services Grant Writing Guide:
The NVFC has developed this guide to help departments navigate the complexities of applying for federal grants. Since more requests are made for federal grants each year than there are funds available, it is extremely important to prepare the best grant application possible. Writing a compelling narrative and adhering to numerous rules and guidelines can often be challenging. The Fire and Emergency Services Grant Writing Guide is designed to make this process less daunting and assist departments and their grant writers in preparing a competitive application for these important grant opportunities.
