    FH just broke 800, FF just broke 400. At least 30 more pushing the button soon, but I think it will be short of last year which was around 1700 I think. I'll be surprised if it's higher than that. Most hiring folks decided against it with the 3 year program instead of the 5 since revenues wouldn't grow quick enough to cover the 3rd-5th at 100%. 3rd required but idea being that bodies are kept forever so 3 year program is 0-0-100-100-100 in matching instead of the old 10-20-50-70-100 of the old program. Would have been better to do the layoff in a 2 year free and keep the new position at the 5, but gotta stop making sense or I'll never get anywhere....

    bc....if the amount requested for safer is less than the allocated amount, do you think all apps will be awarded (hiring side)? i understand that all apps will still be reviewed and i think it is unlikely any departments are asking for anything unreasonable through safer, with the economy as bad as it is....

    i will be submitting tomorrow for 2 firefighters, which will increase our manning on-shift to 3 per day (we are assisted by 9 poc firefighters)......being a small combo department these 2 firefighters are needed, i hope afg sees the benefit it will have on our ops....(we will comply with nfpa 1720)

    this is our 3rd try at this, hopefully we will be successful this year.....

    Basically yes, if the amount requested in a category is less than what is required to be given by law then everything eligible is funded. If there's still money left over from hiring side then it goes over to R&R, and if there's money left after all that it goes back to the Treasury. It is doubtful that the app total for 2010 SAFER will reach $420mil so if that happens there again will all eligible items be funded on all applicants and money returned to the Treasury. There's no authority to move money between programs. Will be commenting about that more officially here soon with action items everyone should take, if they agree with them of course.

    I guess the million $ question is.....Did the 1 month extension help increase the amount of submitted grants or just provide additional time for department's to dot their I's and cross their T's?

    Speaking only for myself, it just gave us time to review and re-review our numbers and details.
    Good Luck to all.

    I have 2 to post tonight or early tomorrow. 1 of each.

    But I'm going to get on my box right now with a little rant.

    I don't feel it is right that due to the low numbers of applications being ready to turn in on December 15, 2009 that FEMA extend the deadline date. My chances were better, and I feel I am still in good shape and have good arguments with both, but when there were only 200 apps in for the December deadline I had a more percentage of a chance to be awarded. Now because it was extended I am goin to have to compete with more applications that weren't ready or did not have any idea of wanting to turn one in or didn't understand the grant.

    Good luck to all

    Default SAFER Grant

    Submitted a recruitment grant at 10:10pm (EST) and was number 476. Now the waiting begins, hope the SAFER grants are quicker than the AFD grants.
