Has Your Fire Department Submitted a Grant Request Yet?
Each month, Carney Strong Initiative donates decontamination supplies, online training, and educational material to one volunteer or small municipal fire department. Grants are awarded on a rolling basis, and each request submitted is eligible for other special donations such as our Decontamination Day held annually on October 19th, the anniversary of Carney's passing.
Please note the GEARsafe Grant Giveaway is not part of the regular grant requests, and require a separate submission. Details for the GEARsafe program can be found here.
Carney Strong Initiative is a Proud Member of the South Carolina Firefighter Cancer Coalition
The South Carolina Firefighter Cancer Coalition is launching a webpage and initiative to keep the South Carolina Fire Service informed about firefighter cancer, “Firefighters and Cancer: What you need to Know.” This initiative is a 12 month informative project to discuss a specific firefighter cancer topic with a related message each week of that month.
