Fire and Rescue Serving the Heartland

Recruiting and Retention Tools

Recruiting and Retention in your local, volunteer department is one of the most important things you can do. NSVFA continues to work on your behalf to help you recruit and retain the best people possible. 

From 2012 to 2016 NSVFA facilitated a 1.92 million dollar Federal SAFER Grant that provided education, advertising tools and scholarship money for local departments. The first round of grant funding expired in October of 2016. In September of 2016 and again on February 15th (2017) NSVFA re-applied for that grant. Please stay tuned!

Below are just some of the resources available to your department. Please don't hesitate to contact your NSVFA office with needs or questions. Good luck!
