1.) A. Identify indicators for tracking performance information on participation levels (by school and age category) to be collected by organizations involved in the delivery of the grant program and review the program's target audience and reach in light of the absence of performance information on participation rates.

Indicators for tracking performance information on participation levels (by school and age category) have been developed in collaboration with the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada. A procedural document has been developed and shared with regional First Nation Firefighter organizations with the aim of clarifying and standardizing the process for the delivery of the grant program and collection of performance data.

B. Work toward streamlining the program's authorities and situating them under the Capital Facilities and Maintenance (CFM) Program.
Work with the Chief Financial Officer Sector to realign the authority under the Capital Facilities and Maintenance Program.
As of 31/03/2011:
Officials from the Chief Financial Officer Sector and the Community Infrastructure Branch have reviewed the options available and recommended that the authority remain in its current position for the following reasons:
This grant is education centred and promotes fire prevention and awareness in schools.
It is a small grant and steps have been taken to strengthen reporting.
Changes to the CFM program Terms and Conditions have already been approved and reopening these for minor revisions is not advisable.
