    At first I didn't believe it either, so I checked about 4 times just to make sure it wasn't going to go away!

    Thumbs up We have an 1199A for our OPS request

    WEll, well. I could scarcely believe the thread that 1199As were showing up today. I went in to check ours and there is our 1199A for the SCBA refill station we requested. Awesome.

    I checked our vehicle request and the turnout/SCBA request I wrote for a neigboring department but there weren't any updates...yet.

    Congratulations to all the first round recipients. Looks like the grant wheels are turning a bit earlier this year!

    Where exactly do you check for this? Will it show up on the main page after you login?

    Check the drop down box on your application from the status page. If you have had a previous award then go to that award and check your 1199 from that application, it will be listed there.

    It will depend if you have been successful in the past or not.

    1) If you have been a previous grant winner log in and go to the application that was your first award. In the Action Box will be "View 1199A", click on that and you will see at the top References to 1199A's from all the previous awards. Look to see if there is a reference to 2008.

    2) If you have never been awarded before go to the current application. In the Action Box you will be looking for "Update 1199A".

    I have to play in the attic moving stuff around before I can sit down. But almost 500 to check so plenty of time to goof off in the AC after I lose a few gallons.... Congrats to everyone so far!

    Congrats everyone!!!! So, when does the first round get released? Is it wishful thinking that we will see it by the end of June?

    Thanks for the heads up on checking the previous 1199.

    It now shows our 2008 Vehicle Application# EMW-2008-FV-04066!

    I guess that means it's comming!

    *doing the happy dance*
