    Default Fire Construction Grants

    I am looking for a clarification can I apply for one or more of the eligible items without building a new station or doing a major renovation. For Example can I apply for Sprinklers, Gear racks and a Vehicle exhaust system???

    Technically yes, but since those things are also eligible in the main AFG program they're not putting much priority on those by themselves. Brick & mortar is the main focus since there are few options for actual construction projects. Those things are required to either be there now or in any project applied for but I wouldn't put too much faith in them by themselves. Never know so go after it and see what comes of it. They can't say yes if we don't ask.

    Of course you can apply for anything - hot and cold running females if you want.

    But the guidance seems to ask for so many things in addition to what you are asking for - that one would guess that you should make sure you have all of those, such as energy efficient stuff, bunk rooms, gender specific bathrooms (Is that male, female, undecided?) Make sure in your narrative that they know you have that stuff also.

    YMMV. As Brian says, you never know....
