Operational Assistance Grants
Annually OFS distributes funding to rural fire departments serving communities with populations less than 10,000 that depend either fully or partially on volunteer firefighters. These grants are authorized by Governor Kevin Stitt and funded by the Oklahoma Legislature. Grant funds can be used for purchasing items such as firefighting equipment, insurance premiums, equipment maintenance and personal protective gear. For more details on Oklahoma's Operational grants, such as how a department becomes eligible, we have prepared a OFS Fire Note on the subject.
