Congressman Higgins Announces Application Period for SAFER Federal Fire Grants

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) announced the application window for grants provided through the Department of Homeland Security Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Services (SAFER) program is now open.   SAFER grants are aimed at increasing the number of firefighters and enhancing a department’s ability to comply with federal standards that ensure that their communities have adequate protection from fire and fire related hazards.  This year Congress appropriated approximately $420 million for the SAFER program. 

“I encourage local companies to apply for funding through this federal grant to help support outreach and recruitment of the next generation of first responders,” said Higgins.

As part of this year's Ed Tech Day, Notre Dame Academy benefitted from the installation of LanSchool, a software program which enables the instructor to monitor the students computer screens during instruction.
