REF: September 1, 2004—FRIG Competition Dear Mr. Jones:
Quad-County Fire and Rescue Association is a cooperative effort of the 47 volunteer fire and rescue departments in Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison counties. The purpose of the association is to pool scarce resources to improve training, recruitment, and community programs and outreach.
The purpose of the proposed project is to improve our abilities and capacity in fire prevention, fire fighting, and emergency medical services. The activities we will undertake in pursuit of this purpose include neighborhood fire prevention programs, a junior fire marshal program in the schools, centralized training, centralized recruitment, and improved purchasing power through standardization and coordination.
We need assistance in expanding the collaborative effort on behalf of the fire and rescue departments in the Quad-County area. It is widely accepted that the association concept has promise, but for the true strength of the association to become real, we need to show concrete results. FEMA assistance will enable us to overcome this hurdle.
