The Strawberry Fire Protrection District would be interested in getting on your mailing list if you have one. We are a small rural volunteer fire department located in the central Sierra Nevada. Our revenue from property taxes is minimal and we rely on fundraising, donations and grant monies to offset expenses for operation and to pay a small stipend to our volunteers. We are very interested to get information on the grants you may have available. Thank you for all of your generosity to the many rural fire districts you have assisted throughout the State.
The Guadalupe Fire department is looking to apply for the grant and would like to know when the next grant cycle opens up. We are a small combination (Volunteer/Paid) department the serves a community of 7000 in the Central Coast of California. Our community is primarily low income and we depend heavily on grants to fund equipment replacement or upgrades. We would like to thank for what you do for all the fire agencies and look to hear back from you soon.
