Nolensville Fire Department receives SAFER grant
The town of Nolensville and Nolensville Fire and Rescue have received a $1,153,464 grant through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) program. The grant will be awarded over a three-year period and will be used to help support the hiring of six new firefighters. In addition to raising the daily staff number for the department, the new hires will also help NFR work better in conjunction with mutual aid departments to reach NFPA standards. The town of Nolensville began offering full-time fire protection in July 2021 and has been working diligently since to build a combination department that meets the needs of the community.
