In 2017, Firehouse Grants had the opportunity to assist Warrenton Rural Volunteer Fire Department of Warren County, North Carolina in preparing a successful AFG award for $161,334 to replace 28 sets of SCBA. Word of the success and the highly professional experience spread throughout the county. Not surprisingly, when the county firefighter’s association and the county manager identified a need to replace portable and mobile radios, they called the team at Firehouse Grants. Although the scale and scope of a regional application is considerably more complex, Firehouse Grants provided the strategic oversight and online tools to streamline the process of gathering all of the required information. By preparing a unique, comprehensive, and compelling application, Firehouse Grants was able to secure a regional AFG award for all thirteen fire departments in Warren County to purchase new radios, resulting in a $639,000 AFG award.
