Grant applications from Volunteer Fire Departments are being accepted by the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office through the newly established Volunteer Firefighter Equipment and Training Grant Program.

Fire departments must hold a valid recognition from the SFMO and have a staff made up of at least 51% volunteers to apply.
Grant proceeds may be used to purchase equipment used by a firefighter to extinguish fires and protect the life of a firefighter, other than fire trucks or vehicles.
