NC OSFM is excited to announce a first-time grant opportunity aimed at supporting existing summer camp programs offered by fire departments across our state.

The Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) announces the continuation and enhancement of the "Firefighters' Health Benefits Pilot Program" as the North Carolina Firefighter Cancer Benefit Program, effective January 1, 2024.
