Bill "Army" Armstrong Training Grant for Current Firefighters
This fund was established in 2001 by the Licking County Firefighters Association in memory of Bill “Army” Armstrong, who was a very active part of fire service in Licking County. William (Bill) Armstrong, who served on the Newark Fire Department for 30 years and was a founding member of the Licking County Hazardous Materials Team, died in 1999. Bill was the President of the Licking County Firefighters Association for several years, headed up the Haz-Mat team, and also taught.
This fund assists current members of the Licking County Firefighters Association who have been approved by their chief or training officer to complete a fire science or Haz-Mat training course that does not otherwise qualify for state reimbursement. These training courses must be provided by an accredited institution or licensed training provider.
Training grants are awarded within each calendar year and as funds are available.
All available funds for the 2021 Bill "Army" Armstrong Training Grant for Current Firefighters have been awarded for this year.
The 2022 Application will be available in February 2022.
