The Montana State Fire Chiefs’ Association in conjunction with the Montana State Volunteer Firefighters Association applied for and were awarded a Federal SAFER Grant (Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response). The goal of the grant is to increase the number of volunteer firefighters in Montana by 1,000 over the period of the grant. Both Associations are committed to providing comprehensive information to potential volunteers. It is about promoting volunteerism to support our mission and breaking down any barriers that keep individuals from becoming volunteer firefighters.
