The success of the Assistance to Firefighters Grants (AFG) and the Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grants depend upon volunteer peer reviewers from fire service organizations.
We are looking for evaluators to review and score the applications for both FY 2012 AFG and SAFER. This year the AFG and SAFER evaluations will be conducted simultaneously. The evaluation sessions are planned for a location to be determined in the Washington/Baltimore/lNorthern Virginia metropolitan area from August 19-24, 2012. There is no alternate time period selected.
Evaluators should plan to arrive the day before the evaluation period and return home the afternoon of the final day of the evaluation period. The AFG Program will cover travel costs such as transportation, food, and lodging. Ground transportation will also be provided between the airport and the panel location. Panelists will be contacted to discuss the necessary travel arrangements and reimbursement. No salary or compensation other than travel expenses will be provided for volunteers.
We are looking for panelists with a broad knowledge in a variety of areas of the fire and emergency medical service.
