The Independent Insurance Agents of South Dakota (IIASD) is proud to support SD Volunteer Fire Departments through their Fire Department Grant Program.
In 2011, they distributed the first grant of $5000 to Vale Fire Department. In support of the service and protection the South Dakota Fire Departments provide to the insurance industry and our communities, the IIASD Board voted to continue funding the program at the State Level by setting aside $10,000 - $15,000 each year to assist volunteer fire departments with training and equipment funding.
This year, IIASD is partnering with the State Fire Marshall’s Office in supporting the Firefighter Essentials Grant Program which provides revenue to support fire safety and education programs required to maintain certification. IIASD Service Corp is providing a match of $750 to fire departments across the state who hosted the Firefighters Essentials education program.
