RFBAQ Paid grants for 2017 – So Far

Wednesday, 8 Nov 2017

The RFBAQ has funded more individual grants and supported more brigades in 2017 that in any other year in it’s history.

With 2 months left to go we are still seeing brigade grant applications arriving in the post.

In addition to this, the RFBAQ has purchased 8 slip on units for brigades without appliances.

The easy RFBAQ Slip On Unit Grant for 8 units i s now open until Monday 27th November where they will then be tabled to the Senior Executive Management.

Each grant consists of a unit with speed loader and foam pro-portioner and will be delivered almost immediately to the successful applicant as they are ready and waiting for their new brigades!
