    Question SAFER ideas and awards from FY2008

    What is getting funded? What shouldn't we ask for?

    We have seen successes in advertising costs; billboards, newspaper adds, local signs, direct mail pieces,

    Retention projects; embroidered jackets (initially denied then reinstated), AD&D insurance, gift cards stipend for completion of training.

    We were denied; LED signs and radio advertising

    Default SAFER for 2006

    We were approved for hiring 1 firefighter in 2006 and recuirtment and retention of volunteers as well.

    They approved $1,000 per year to send out quarterly newsletter to citizens. ( I wish we had doubled that amount.) all citizens that recieve it like it. We have gotten 3 new members because of this.

    Paying each members dues in the state fire fighters pension fund. ($15.00 per member per month).

    Paying each new member $100. bonus for completeing NPQ firefighter 1 training.

    Physicals were deleted because of being available in AFG.
