Fire Equipment Certification Form

The 2023 Fire Equipment Certification (Form FA-1) and documentation of any service area changes are due to the Minnesota Department of Revenue (DOR) by March 15, 2023.

Submission of the information is required for communities to be eligible for 2023 fire state aid. Five percent of a community’s fire state aid is forfeited for each week or fraction of a week that the FA-1 Form is submitted past the March 15 due date.

Form FA-1 can be completed online on the DOR website. A Fire Service Areas report is also posted at the above link, with information on the documentation that the DOR needs to confirm any fire department service area changes. Instructions for completing the form and a list of forms received by the DOR are also provided.
