In 2014 the Maryland State Firemen’s Association (MSFA) and the Maryland Fire Chiefs Association (MFCA) were awarded a SAFER grant.

There are two programs currently offered to MSFA members and member departments by the Safer Grant: Tuition Reimbursement and Firefighter Physicals. The procedures for both can be found under the links to both programs. Please click on the links for more information.

The grant also has funding available for committees to use for Recruitment and Retention, Training and Marketing. The forms to request funding for those projects can be found under the links below. Please refer to these documents for submission to the Oversight Committee for any project considerations.

Any questions regarding these two programs, project requests, or reimbursement for payment by participants or vendors can be sent via email to Elaine Custead, the Safer Grant Project Coordinator.
