    Default Grants for new station

    My dept is starting to get some info on any grants that would help cover the cost of a new station. I am looking for any grants (other than the FEMA grant) that might help us.

    Look for some local foundations and wine and dine them and see if they like your idees, will your new station be a command center for community in a large scale disaster? This will help and will it have generator power and a designated relief center for community, you need to find ways to benefit others, have a meeting room with kitchen for non-profit organizations to meet. Lots of ideas but it will take lots of work and patience. Good luck.
