    Congrats Jeff....Hopefully this will only be the start of good things to come!

    It's not snowing here at the Lake but Brian is in town so we are making sure our trucks are ready to roll. Kurt brings SNOW ...Brian brings lots of runs....

    We will see you tomorrow.

    Getting ready to head out now, we have ice here instead of snow now, I figure Kurt must have flown over on his way somewhere early this morning and brought this crap with him

    I need to jump on here quick to let all of you know how much I also appreciate your input. I have become addicted to these forums and my wife has threatened to leave me for that reason. My, am I going to miss her!! Oh well, back to my discussion... Thanks to all of you that helped me out with the sample narratives and to Kurt for his willingness to brave the elements and make those trips north for the seminars. Our area is much safer because of you, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!! Our department was awarded our quick attack grant this morning, so I am floating on cloud nine right now. Congrats to those on the list today and good luck to those that are waiting. Thanks again.

    Congratulations. It is a great feeling getting that email. You can go for even bigger game now, but 68K is a great, great start.

    And Kelly, be advised, congrats go to you too. All the first timers. To me the first one was the best.

    Thumbs up congrats

    Osborn,

    Waterford Fire in MI sends out a congrats to you too. The first award is soooo sweet. I am sure this is your first of many. Way to go!

    Congrats to all that have been awarded so far!

    I have never dealt with Brian, though I know many have, and have been succesful with him. My experience is with Kurt Bradley. Kurt has been my grant hero. Around town I refer to him as my mentor. These guys have so much to offer to the fire service.
    Thanks men!

    Received our e-mail today for a tanker. One more for Missouri. Congrats to everyone that has been awarded so far, lot of had work has gone into writting grants . Thank You to Kurt. I got a chance to talk to you on the phone a couple of years ago and you gave me some great advice on writting grants that helped my department win 4 grants in the last 2 years. I hope to be able to attend one of his classes someday. Brian you are not to be left out either. You guys are great. While I have not posted much on here I have gained a lot of knowledge just reading what is on here every day.
