It has been a very difficult year for the fire service and EMS communities in Illinois and across the country. We unfortunately lost five heroes in the line of duty in 2021; Michael Pickering, MaShawn Plummer, Garrett Ramos and Mehdi Mourad. The OSFM sends our thoughts and prayers to the families, friends and our brothers and sisters at the fire departments who have lost heroes this year. This page honors their memories and service to their communities and citizen of Illinois. Thank you to all our first responders for all that you do to keep our communities safe.
Office of the Illinois State Fire Marshal (OSFM) announced the recipients
of the 2022 Small Equipment Grant Program. A total of $2.5 million was awarded
to 104 fire departments/districts and EMS providers across the state. The
program was established to provide grants of up to $26,000 each for the
purchase of small firefighting and ambulance equipment.
This program is an innovative approach to a problem that has long caused difficulties for fire departments and not-for profit ambulance services in Illinois, particularly those that have hardships in generating the necessary revenue for small equipment. The purpose is to allow eligible applicants the opportunity to purchase small equipment that they may otherwise not be able to purchase. The OSFM received 373 applications, requesting around $8.4 million in funding for this grant period.
