Adoption of Budget Ordinance Amendment 2024-6 to appropriate the 2023 Hartford Fire Safety Grant

Council District(s)

Relationship To Strategic Plan:
Goal 1: Safe and Secure Community

Executive Summary:
Council is asked to adopt Budget Ordinance Amendment 2024-6 to appropriate $10,000 of the 2023 Hartford Fire Grant. It will be used to purchase an enclosed trailer, portable generator, propane stove and accessories to educate the community on the dangers of unattended cooking.

The City of Fayetteville Fire Department's Community Risk Reduction Division works with community organizations to educate them on the risks or dangers they may face, and implement strategies to lessen their impact.
Fires originating in the kitchen remain the number one risk to our community. In the first three quarters of 2023, the Department has responded to over 650 fires originating in the cooking areas. The 2023 Fire Prevention Week theme is "Cooking safety starts with YOU! Pay attention to fire prevention." TM highlights the need across the United States to educate our communities about fire safety in the kitchen. The Hartford Fire Grant will assist us in our efforts to reduce risks in our community.


Budget Impact:
There is no impact on the general fund as there is no local match required.

1) Adopt Budget Ordinance Amendment 2024-6 to appropriate the grant funding.
2) Do not adopt Budget Ordinance Amendment 2024-6 and provide further direction to staff.

Recommended Action:
Staff recommends that Council move to adopt the budget ordinance amendment as presented.
