Volunteer Fire Department Funding

The Province of British Columbia is providing $5 million in funding to support volunteer and composite fire departments with grants for equipment and training. Local governments and all First Nations in BC will be eligible to apply for up to $25,000 towards the purchase of fire department and interface firefighting equipment (i.e. hoses, bladders, personal protection equipment) and firefighting and mental wellbeing training.

UBCM’s Community Emergency Preparedness Fund (CEPF) will administer the new funding stream. The deadline for applications is November 15, 2019, and the Program and Application Guide and Application Form are now available.
