Emergency Communication Networks

A Division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety



The primary goal of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program is to help fire departments and non-affiliated EMS organizations meet their firefighting and emergency response needs. AFG seeks to support organizations that lack the tools and resources necessary to more effectively protect the health and safety of the public and their emergency response personnel with respect to fire and all other hazards.


AFG grants are made directly to local units of government. See and for more information.
