Volunteer Fire Department Assistance
Rapid population growth places an increased demand on volunteer fire departments by a public, which expects a high level of quality service. The Volunteer Fire Assistance Program provides an excellent opportunity for qualifying volunteer fire departments to receive training and purchase equipment and supplies such as protective clothing, self contained breathing apparatus, hose nozzles, radios, pagers, pumps, generators, and other fire equipment. The VFA funds enable rural fire departments to respond to wildfires, especially in the wildland urban interface areas. The Division of Forestry awards these funds through a competitive grant process and this program benefits Nevada residents and visitors alike.
