Tell Congress to Restore AFG/SAFER Funding

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to consider legislation later this week that would cut funding for the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program to $200 million and the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant program to $150 million in FY 2012.  Both programs were funded at $405 million in FY 2011.  Congressman Steven LaTourette (R-OH) will be offering an amendment to restore funding for AFG and SAFER.   

Contact your U.S. Representative today and tell them to support the LaTourette amendment!
