FY 2012 Staffing For Adequate Fire & Emergency Response Veterans Hiring Program
FEMA is encouraging fire departments applying for FY 2012 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) hiring grants to make the recruitment and hiring of veterans a priority and focus of their hiring policies and recruitment efforts. FEMA has developed several strategies and incentives that will be available to grantees that hire military veterans. Of the $320 million authorized for the FY 2012 SAFER grant program, $50 million in grant funds will be set aside specifically to fund SAFER firefighter positions that are filled by military veterans who are new employees not currently employed in the fire service.
