Funding to be used to recruit new staff

Williams Fire Protection Authority Chief, Jeff Gilbert, announced that the department is expected to receive $713,880 in federal funding to recruit new staff. This federal grant comes from the Department of Homeland Security’s Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program.

“The grant will cover the cost of four additional firefighters,” said Gilbert. “allowing the Williams Fire Protection Authority to have two firefighters on shift 24/7 for the next three years.”

Gilbert said, the original grant application would have had a cost share over the three year period of the grant, but due to the economic hardship of the current pandemic, FEMA waived all cost shares for the grant duration

Eligible fire departments and Emergency Medical Services organizations in California and across the country can apply Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program grants. These competitive grants help fire departments recruit new firefighters and retain current personnel.
