A special thank you to the group of homeschooled children from the Treasure Valley area who came by to visit BME Fire Trucks yesterday!
After a tour through the factory, they were taken on a ride in a Wildland Type 4 engine. Such fun for all of us!
The application period for the Fiscal Year 2016 Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) program runs from October 11th through November 18th. The AFG program helps fire departments, nonaffiliated EMS departments, and state fire training academies get equipment, training, PPE, vehicles, and other gear they may not be able to get otherwise due to financial constraints.
More information about grants and grant-writing is available at the page for Assistance for Firefighters Grant page: https://www.fema.gov/assistance-firefighters-grant
