    We received ours last week as well for 9 firefighters. It will allow us to staff both companies with 4 per shift!

    thank you Jam24u:
    It all comes from participating here and from the GURU's classes. We had been mildly successful before attending seminars with Kurt & Brian, since then our rate of return has improved.
    Even the small local grants help us improve the quality of service we provide our community. The bigger federal grants help us meet all the newer requirements for modern equipment that wouldn't be possible on our limited budget for many years.

    Now if we could only get a cell tower built in our area!

    We got 3000 per year for 4 years= 12000 to advertise in local newspaper for recruitment and retention. Every little bit helps.

    Thank for the offer LV:
    As far as I know there are three carriers signed up,plug several govt. agencies
    They were pouring concrete for the anchor bases today , so hopefully we will see an operational tower within the next few months.
    My biggest concern is to relocate the emergency services antenna to the top of the new 300 ft. tower. We have been working on this project for toooo many years. Took a long time to convince the town fathers and voters it was necessary.
    Then we had to convince the bird lovers that we didn't need a study to show a few seagulls [dump ducks] might fly into it but it was unlikely they would.
    The added benefit will be cell service that actually works.
    [keeping fingers crossed]
