Nest Technology Grant

Firefighters put themselves on the front lines everyday protecting our communities and acting as first responders in emergencies. To support these heroes, Nest, maker of the Nest Protect Smoke and CO Alarm, and the Leary Firefighters Foundation have teamed up for the second time to award two $25,000 grants for new technology and equipment to fire departments in need.

To qualify for the grant, local departments will need to be nominated by members of your community. Every vote counts. 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 https://nest.com/thanks/ from April 6, 2017 until midnight PT on May 12, 2017.  Nominations are now closed. See last year’s grants become reality in this video.
