Joint Budget Committee. The state treasurer is required to
transfer $5 million from the general fund to the local firefighter safety
and disease prevention fund (fund). The money is continuously
appropriated to the department of public safety (department). The bill
requires the division of fire prevention and control (division) in the

department to use the money transferred to directly pay for equipment and
training for local and volunteer fire departments or to reimburse local and
volunteer fire departments for the costs of equipment and training without
requiring a grant application and review process. If the division
determines it cannot use the full amount to directly pay for equipment and
training, it may use the money for any purpose authorized prior to January
1, 2022, for money in the fund. The division is required to prioritize fire
departments that it identifies as having the greatest need for assistance to
ensure firefighter safety.
