    Exclamation FP&S Grant Narratives

    Hey guys I am writing the FP&S narrative for our local volunteer fire department. We are looking to try and get some knox boxes to put into our district. Just wondering if anyone has any successful narrtives they would be willing to share. Not just limited to knox boxes either any and all successful narratives are welcome. Please email them to ontariofirerescue@yahoo.com

    Thanks for the ideas.

    I would think that CAD is operations. For it to be prevention it would have to be geared towards pre-planning and inspections not toward the CAD side of things I would think. I know it addresses MDT in the Operations PG though which again makes me think this would fall under operations. Just my limited opinion though.

    Thanks! I've been lurking from time to time. Took a little time off from the grant game, lots of other changes (positive ones) taking place on our department lately, so I've had my hands full! Now I recently got told to throw one of these together, have had to get myself back into the "groove"!

    So am I. Does anyone have any they could send to me for thoughts and ideas. I do NOT intend to just copy someone else's narrative.

    I think if you put them in the apparatus you will have a hard time convincing the evaluators they are not MDT, which are not allowed by the program guidance. Computers necessary to track a program or as an electronic check list for prevention staff to conduct inspections/pre-plans might be an easier sell. Just my thoughts

    I just completed my narrative (multi hazard program for seniors), it looks as though the first step would be your vulnerability assessment or risk analysis. This can be formal or informal perhaps a survey to your staff on how often they are delayed and how long they are delayed, what damage has occurred due to this delay etc... If you don't do this first you are dead in the water. I would look beyond Knox too, there is a company in RI that produces a product very comparable to knox for much less money. (Emergency Access Systems) on average the savings are about $100 per box.
