Immokalee Fire Control District Fire Chief Paul Anderson has received notification from U.S. Senator Bill Nelson that the District was awarded the federal SAFER Grant (Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response) in the amount of $2,012,052 over two (2) years; $808,824 to retain the six (6) Firefighter positions previously funded by the SAFER grant that recently expired, as well as $1,203,228 for nine (9) additional Firefighter positions to add three (3) additional Firefighters per shift to our staffing in order for us to come into compliance with NFPA 1720 and provide 10 personnel on the scene of a structure fire (total of 15 positions in grant application). The grant is 100% funded with federal dollars. Immokalee’s grant was one of the grants awarded in just the second week of awards, which indicates that it scored among the 24 highest scoring grant applications nationwide. There were no Fire Departments from Florida awarded during the first week. Immokalee was one of three from Florida awarded during the second week. The funding appropriated for the current program nationwide is a total of $340 Million. 10% is required to go to Recruitment and Retention of Volunteer activities and another 10% is required to go to all-volunteer departments or mostly volunteer departments, which left $272 Million to go towards applications like Immokalee’s. Last year, out of 49,010 recognized fire departments in the country, only 250 (0.51%) were awarded SAFER Grants totaling $304,238,669. Immokalee Fire Control District has received a total of $3,206,914 in federal SAFER grant funds over the last three years, having been awarded grants in 2012 ($736,920 to rehire six Firefighters that were laid off), 2014 ($457,942 for recruitment, training, and retention of Volunteer Firefighters and hiring a full-time Volunteer Coordinator/Training Officer), and 2015 ($2,012,052 for retention of six Firefighter positions pus hiring of nine additional Firefighters).
