Fire Prevention and Safety Peer Review Call for Volunteers

The Department of Homeland Security has again asked the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) for
volunteers to review the Fire Prevention and Safety grants. The evaluation sessions are planned at the
National Emergency Training Center (NETC) in Emmitsburg, Maryland, during the following weeks:
October 22-26 Evaluation Group 1
October 29-November 2 Evaluation Group
Volunteer evaluators should plan on arriving the day before the evaluation period and returning home
the afternoon of the evaluation period's final day. The grant program will cover travel costs such as
transportation, food and lodging. Ground transportation will also be provided between the airport and
NETC. Panelists will be contacted to discuss the necessary travel arrangements and reimbursement. No
salary or compensation other than travel expenses will be provided for volunteers.
Please submit you peer review requests by Thursday, August 23. Please email the following to Allison
