Departments can apply for training grants from the FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grants program to receive ISO and HSO certification courses. The course delivery could be local or regional, according to AFG guidelines. Certain costs may be covered, including costs related to instructor travel. Courses receiving a higher priority within the AFG program evaluation process includes instructor led training that leads to national or state certification. The FDSOA ISO and HSO courses meet that criteria. The FY 2017-2018 grant application period has passed. Contact www.fema.gov/welcome-assistance-firefighters-grant-program for announcements of the FY 2018-2019 grant application period.
If we receive more information to assist, it will be posted here.
