Safety Grant

The matching safety grant is designed to help FMIT members pay for safety- and health-related resources that help eliminate, reduce or control their exposures to loss. A few examples of grants approved include:

  • A member had a large number of losses due to its sidewalks becoming uneven, and used the safety grant to fund half of the cost of repair.
  • A member’s fire rescue staff had an increase in back injuries caused by lifting old gurneys. New gurneys with automatic lift assists were purchased to reduce the exposure.
  • A member had bullet-resistive vests that were near the end of their useful life. New vests were purchased to provide employees with additional protection while out on patrol.

To be awarded a safety grant, members complete a three-page request form. Completed forms are sent to the Risk and Safety Consultants for review. Once the request is approved, a check is sent to the member.
