All,

The IAFC is renewing their urgent request for all fire departments to complete the IAFC COVID-19 PPE Readiness & Availability Assessment Survey by Monday, April 20.
 
Earlier this week,  IAFC President Gary Ludwig asked (letter link below) Congress and the administration for $5 billion for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Programs (AFG) and $5 billion in special funding for Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant Programs to support fire and EMS response to COVID-19. 

The data received from the survey will help the IAFC make its best case to our federal representatives that the funding is critical to help fire and EMS leaders protect Firefighters and EMT’s and the communities they serve during this global pandemic.

PLEASE TAKE THE SURVEY HERE:
