    Thumbs down

    Here is another "sad" statistic:
    State: KS
    Rounds: 9
    Awards: 5
    Vehicle: 0
    Training: 1
    Equip/training: 3
    EMS: 1
    Avg Award: $12,526.80
    When are we going to see some "real" $ come this way? This is starting to get a little bit old.

    In comparison to Round 9 in 2007 (1663 awards) there has been a 62% decrease in awards which translate into a 62% reduction in the number (average) awards per week (185-2007).

    At this point slugs move faster than the AFG.

    John, do I sense some "grant anxiety" there? The money is there, it is not going anywhere and much like the " Field of Dreams" quote, "if you build it, it will come". Things will start happening soon. You are not alone and I have several others in Kansas sufferring the same fate. I just had a first time AFG writer whose department in NE had to wait almost 2 full months from their 10q's to award letter.

    Just a little bit Seems like things are moving really slow with anything coming this way or anywhere right now. Maybe a Zoloft or something would help After going thru this each year, you would think that a guy could get used to it!

    Well I think everyone knows my stress relief comes via a deer hunting stand or a "choir practice" with Jack Daniels and a karaoke mic! LOL!

    Hey Bugle, with your vast statistics capabilities, is there any way to compare how much money is left for career vs vollie?

    I don't believe that will be possible since the prior awards announced don't show what has been given out to volly vs. career.

    Plus the career is only a max of 45%, volly/combo is min 55%. So actually no requirement to give any money to career at all, but competitive-wise it's usually at least 25-30%.

    If you are on the vollie side no issue with funding even though there is the 45/55 split.

    Over the past 3 years vollie departments have on average recieved 65% of the funding, combination/POC 24% & career 11%.

    I see. For some reason I was thinking that it was split exactly at 45/55. Was trying to figure out how much of the career $$ was left, but since it sounds as though they never hit the 45% cap then shouldn't be a concern.

    Our neighbors to the east, Cowley County Fire District 3 in Burden has received their 10 questions and 1099 for a new pumper/tanker. They are just waiting on the offical announcement. 1250 pgm pump/ 1500 tank, 5 man cab

    The FIRE Act has been a god send for our county - this new truck means 5 out of 7 districts in our county have received either new engine, tanker or rescue. Almost all of our departments have received new bunker gear and Grace PASS Systems via the FIRE ACT Grant. New trucks and new gear make it a bit easier to recruit volunteers.

    Hoping to see more Kansas awards in the future!

    We are going for headsets on all the trucks and remote bumper turrents on grass rigs. Keeping fingers and toes crossed!
