Plans in place to help fire departments keep their communities safe

​We are working closely with Twin Cities fire departments and others across the state to ensure have the resources they need to keep people and property in their communities safe during the trial for former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. 

We can work with the Minnesota State Fire Chiefs Association to activate the statewide mutual aid plan quickly to send help anywhere in the state.    ​

Firefighter Recruitment Grant Information

​The Minnesota State Fire Department Association (MSFDA) is holding informational sessions every other week on Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. to discuss their Firefighter Recruitment Grant. Each one-hour meeting will go over the recruitment grant and provide details on new resources to improve your department's firefighter recruitment efforts.

The grant period began Dec. 10, 2020, and will run for four years.
