Nest (maker of the Nest Protect Smoke and CO Alarm) and the Leary Firefighters Foundation have teamed up for the second year to award two $25,000 grants for new technology and equipment to fire departments in need.
To qualify for the grant, departments need to be nominated by members of their community. The five departments with the most nominations will become grant finalists and the Leary Firefighter Foundation will award two grants through its formal grant application process. Nominations are accepted on Nest.com from April 6 until midnight PT on May 12.
Nest has provided some suggested social media posts to spread the word in your community:
