Turnout gear is used on every alarm and is the core of every fire department. Your department simply cannot exist without it. The Assistance to Firefighters Grant program provides the best means to cover these expenses. However, because of their popularity, turnout gear requests are among the most competitive activities of this grant program.

To assist you in this endeavour, FireRescue1 and FireGrantsHelp have built this free PPE project guide to provide you with information and suggestions to formulate your application for turnout gear and give you the most accurate and up-to-date information on this grants program.

This guide, sponsored by Globe Turnout Gear, includes:

  • Your agency’s guide to planning your AFG application
  • Tips on integrating data into your AFG application
  • Resources to writing a successful grant narrative
  • A checklist to make sure you have everything you need for a successful AFG application
