Body

 

Staff Recommends: Approval of the Attached Resolution.

 

 

Explanation:

The Hartford fire safety education grant has grant funding available for the purpose of enhancing fire safety awareness and education within the community.

 

The Fire Rescue and Beach Safety Department desires to apply for the Hartford fire safety education grant to purchase fire safety public education materials and equipment to reduce the risk of fire and fire related injury or deaths throughout Hollywood.

 

These materials and equipment will be used to target communities in Hollywood which will be identified through a Community Risk Reduction program as having a high fire risk.

 

These public education materials and equipment will also be used throughout the year at various events such as the department’s annual open house and Fire Prevention Week.

 

The Hartford fire safety education grant requires no cash match from the local government receiving the grant.

 

If awarded, this funding will enhance the protection of the public from fire and fire related hazards.
