Equipment Grants


About Our Equipment Grants

As in any profession, there are often much-needed tools that fire and rescue department budgets simply don’t provide for. Unlike most professions, however, the consequences of firefighting and rescue personnel not having these critical items can have tragic results for both victims and first responders alike.

Many fire and rescue departments in the U.S. are under-funded and volunteer-based. This lack of funding often means that critical on-scene safety and rescue equipment is wanting. To assist these agencies, we make grants to purchase needed equipment. Our focus is on 1) funding equipment that is critical to emergency scene life and safety, 2) helping a functional department to function better, and 3) providing equipment that can be shared on a regional basis.


How to Apply for an FSF Equipment Grant

All fire and rescue departments in the United States are eligible to apply for an FSF equipment grant. (Please note that while we consider all applications, we receive many more than we can fund.)  Simply download, fill out, and mail in the application. Click the linked, red box below to download the application.
