SAFER firefighters and communities
Regional Recruitment and Retention Program
Battalion 13, a consortium of six fire districts in northern Westchester County received over $500,000 from FEMA's 2011 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) grant program to increase the number of volunteer firefighters serving the region. This three year grant will help to address the effects of attrition and an aging volunteer force by supporting a marketing plan, community outreach, incentives and other efforts to attract and retain volunteer firefighters serving this 130 square mile area. The grant includes funds for a Recruitment and Retention (R&R) Coordinator to conduct the program activities.

Shown below are key stakeholders of the project: R&R Coordinator Jody Leverich; Croton Falls Fire District Commissioner Angelo D'Agostino and Battalion 13 Coordinator Gary Weber.
