Fire department; application for state funding for the purchase of fire department vehicles and equipment and the construction of fire stations.

The Free State of Bavaria supports Bavarian municipalities in the procurement of firefighting vehicles and equipment and in the construction of fire stations with government grants.

Description

The funding is intended to enable the municipalities to procure the vehicles and equipment required for fire protection and technical assistance services as defined by the Bavarian Fire Department Act (BayFwG) and to house them in fire stations. For this purpose, fixed amounts for the types of vehicles and equipment intended to be eligible for funding are set out in the relevant funding guidelines for the fire department. In the case of funding for the construction of fire stations, the amount of the fixed funding granted in relation to the number of parking spaces increases with the number of parking spaces required.

The state grants for municipal fire departments are financed exclusively from Bavaria's share of the fire protection tax levied nationwide.

Funding in the fire department sector is provided without legal entitlement within the framework of the available budgetary resources.

Prerequisites

The funding requirements are contained in the relevant funding guidelines and the general budgetary provisions, in particular the administrative regulations for grants from the Free State of Bavaria to municipal corporations.

In particular, measures are only eligible for funding if they are suitable for maintaining or improving the performance of the fire department in fulfilling the mandatory municipal tasks of fire prevention and technical assistance. In addition, the measures applied for must be necessary and economical

Procedure

A municipality can submit a corresponding application for funding (see "Forms") to the government responsible for it (= responsible funding authority). The funding application must be accompanied by a technical statement from the responsible district or city fire chief or head of the professional fire department.

If necessary, technical advice to the municipalities is provided by the locally responsible city and district fire councils as well as by the expert advisors for fire protection and disaster control at the governments.

Deadlines

Only projects that have not yet been started can be funded. In the case of procurement, the start of the project is generally deemed to be the conclusion of a supply or service contract; in the case of construction measures, the start is deemed to be the award of the first construction contract.

Required documents

  • Expert opinion of the responsible district or city fire chief or head of the professional fire brigade
