Building a Road Map For Grant Success

From Fire District Vision… to Operational Success


“Michelle helped us build a forward-thinking plan that ultimately enabled us to build two new fire stations, get new apparatus & equipment, recruit 25 new volunteer and resident firefighters and hire 4 new career firefighters. Michelle was instrumental in our obtaining over $4,000,000 in grant funding.”  Don Fortier, Fire Chief (recently retired) Grant County Fire District #3 (Quincy)

“ I contacted Michelle 5 years ago for help building a vision of how to replace our 50-year-old fire station.  She came down and got to know our fire district, then together we compiled a multi-year plan to fund and accomplish the project.  I am pleased to say that we just moved into our new $3.5 million fire station last week!.” Noel Hardin, Fire Chief, Asotin County Fire District #1 (Clarkston).

“Michelle has enhanced our ability to be bold and innovative with our 5-year plan. Her insightful guidance, patience and ability to mine out the best stories has been instrumental in enabling our department to receive $2 million in grant awards (and another $1.2 million pending).  It is impressive the way she leads Fire Chiefs in new directions and instills hope for change.”  Michael S. Kytta, Fire Chief, Riverside Fire Authority (Centralia).
