    Default FP&S and SAFER Data

    FP&S:

    Awarded: $24,529,872

    Remaining Funds: $3,470,128 - $10,470,128

    *A minimum allocation of $28 million, but $35 million has been set aside.


    SAFER:

    Currently, it is a mystery on how much remains due to departments turning back the grants for hiring. To date just over $192 million has been awarded, but only $190 million has been appropriated.

    Interesting on FP that no one has said anything about new 1199As in a long time. Wonder if they dropped them all in those 2 shots or not.

    SAFER is the best example of recycling money around.

    The SAFER money is like a hot potato.....no body wants to hold onto it.

    It's odd to me that the large bulk of these FP&S funds go to non-traditional fire departments entities. Usually research is understandable for the Universities and various associations, but it seems like itís become very difficult for the mom & pop fire depts to get to do much fire prevention work with the programs meager funding. Seems really limiting. Without really doing the math, I bet 75% goes to non FD's.
