Supplemental Travel Reimbursement for State Approved Training
College Scholarships
Physicals & Immunizations
Officer Development & Leadership Symposium

If your department is interested in participating with the new SAFER grant, your Fire Chief or designee will need to thoroughly review the 2015 WFCA SAFER Grant Application Packet and submit the application and survey contained within. Every participating department must fill out the paperwork regardless of previous participation. Don't hesitate to take advantage of this great tool to provide our State's volunteers with these much needed benefits. Any questions can be directed to the Program Administrator, Gene Diedtrich, of the Wyoming Fire Chiefs Association. You can call (307) 629-1532 or email diedt@vcn.com.
