FEMSA/FAMA is at it again. They want you to win $5,000.00 worth of equipment (plus an iPad) for your department! They are running the 2015 FEMSA/FAMA State of the Fire Service Survey on the Economy for several weeks. This is their 12th ANNUAL endeavor to collect valuable insight about how end-user customers assess needs and pursue grant funding.
If you are a firefighter, department officer, emergency medical provider or a department director, all you have to do is take a survey, nothing more. This automatically enters you in for the chance to win an iPad and $5,000.00 worth of equipment!
Either of these links will get your there: http://femsa.org/survey/index.cfm OR http://fama.org/survey/index.cfm
Thank you for assisting in this valuable effort and GOOD LUCK!
The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has launched the department portal component of the “Make Me A Firefighter” campaign aimed to help departments recruit the next generation of volunteer first responders. The NVFC, with support from a SAFER grant, has invested in the development of this research-driven recruitment and retention campaign designed to reach a broader audience of interested individuals.
“Recruitment is a challenge for many volunteer and combination departments across the country,” said NVFC Chairman Kevin D. Quinn. “Yet our research shows that 44 percent of millennials are interested in volunteering with their local department. Many simply don’t know the need for volunteers exists. The Make Me a Firefighter campaign will help build awareness among the public as well as provide departments with the tools and resources they need to recruit to this and other target audiences.”
The online fire department portal is designed to help fire departments every step of the way in their recruitment and retention efforts and it’s completely free for departments to participate. It is very important that departments register for the campaign NOW at portal.nvfc.org and post their volunteer opportunities. This enables those departments to be ready when the public site launches August 1, 2015.

AND, don’t forget to register with the recruitment campaign and post your opportunities now at http://portal.nvfc.org.
