Firefighting activities are traditionally the responsibility of states and local communities. As such, funding for firefighters is provided mostly by state and local governments. During the 1990s, shortfalls in state and local budgets, coupled with increased responsibilities of local fire departments, led many in the fire community to call for additional financial support from the federal government. This book provides an overview on the distribution of fire grant funding; the SAFER Grant program; and federal funding for wildfire control and management. (Imprint: Novinka )
