Since 2013, 911 Enterprise Marketing Solutions (911 EMS) has provided marketing, advertising and recruitment support to the Allegheny Mountain Firefighters Initiative. The AMFI was awarded a $5.1 million FEMA SAFER GRANT to help recruit and retain volunteer firefighters. Our services combined with the active participation of 30 fire departments has resulted in hundreds of new recruits and over 300 new, trained firefighters who are responding to calls today. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the vision and drive provided by our host department,
Phoenix Volunteer Fire Company of Hollidaysburg, PA
This didn't happen overnight. It takes time to connect with your local community and to educate about the urgent need for more volunteers, but you can do this.
If you are not currently a FEMA SAFER grant recipient we can still help you by offering your organization the training needed to enhance your current efforts through localized recruitment. We also offer media training to help you get the power of the press on your side.
911 EMS is knowledgeable of the special needs of volunteer fire departments that are recipients of FEMA’s SAFER grants. Whether you are trying to make the most of your current award or are just in the planning stages to apply for the grant, 911 EMS can help.
Whether you are looking for help for a day, a week or full time, 911 EMS can help your department!
