The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control (DFPC) is excited to announce that the application process to receive equipment through House Bill (HB) 22-1194 funding is now open!

HB 22-1194 allocated 5 million dollars for the direct distribution of firefighter personal protective equipment (PPE) to include structural and wildland PPE, wildland line packs, fire shelters, and self-contained breathing apparatus to fire agencies throughout Colorado. All PPE ordered through this funding will meet the current NFPA standards. 

The application process is open from July 25, 2022 at 0800 and closes on August 19, 2022 at 1700. You will be able to access the application on our website https://dfpc.colorado.gov or directly from this link.

The completion of the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control 2022 Colorado Fire Service Needs Assessment survey must be completed before applying. The distribution of funds will be granted on a needs basis determined by the data your department provides in the needs assessment survey and application. The applications will be reviewed by the Firefighter Safety and Disease Prevention advisory committee with award announcements being made in September. If awarded, you will be contacted by DFPC to discuss PPE details, ordering of PPE, and delivery.
