    Remember med, when you get the award notification, you are to post a new thread stating you got it. We've been enduring the waiting process with your application too you know. Some of us will probably have some worthy comments to post on it.

    Oh yeah I forgot about that Rob. I seem to remember I started that connection with Sly and med. Surpised Sly didn't want to crack my skull.

    At least Medstudent has gotten an 1199a. Me nothing, despite being told for weeks that more are coming. Hey, if I get an award I will be issue an apology to all on here. I just have a feeling that this will not be true!

    Default Budget reduction on pumper!

    Just found a budget reduction on Atwater's pumper application! We've been trying a very long time for this - a great sign. Our hope is renewed! Still waiting for news on our Ops app for training & radios, had a budget reduction on that early December and still nothing.

    Just find that? Just wondering if that's new today or if you hadn't checked in a while. I found a few that happened last week, 5 more today but I hadn't checked that page of logins in 2 weeks.

    Just tried to check the portal and getting a "financial portal is down until 22 feb". Don't know, could just be crappy internet.

    Been checking daily (except weekends) waiting for 1199A on the ops app that had a reduction in December. I think the last day I checked the budget on the vehicle app was Thursday and it wasn't there then. This will be our first double award and first vehicle award if it comes through.

    Cool, congrats. I've been on the lazy side and haven't been checking trucks since they really haven't been touching those. Most of our truck apps are under the limit anyway.

    Received vehicle grant in round 1 for 3000 gallon tanker/tender. Have seen no movement at all on our ops grant for 10 scba and 1 tic.

    Our first sign should be a reduction on the tic due to requesting $10k. When and if the reduction comes will it show up on the application or will it be in the form of an email to the primary account holder? I write the grants and have access to the firegrant login but our city clerk's email address is the primary account address which I do not have access to.

    You'll be able to check your application's budget to see any adjustments.

    Hitting the vehicle without the ops puts you in a category many would sure like to be in.

    I really expected to hit on the ops and get denied on the veh. We open the bids this Friday. I am 1/2 on vehicles and 3/3 on ops not counting the one we are still waiting on. Even if we get denied on the ops I am very happy to get the vehicle.

    Default any chance?

    I was one of the lucky round 5 awardies for operation and safety. I still have a vehicle grant for a much needed tanker in the mix I have recieved no reduction, 1199 or DJ as of yet. Is there still a chance it canbe awarded? If I have not recieved a DJ yet did I get past that pesky computer? thanks in advance for the time it takes to answer.

    No DJs are out yet. Should be verrrrrry soon for computer DJs. If you make it past that first round of denials, you made peer.

    What was your request amount for the tanker?

    I'm in the same boat as Kardsfan (Titanic??) Just got $37,000.00 ops grant for new hose, AED,s and such. Waiting (ever sooo patiently) for good news on my vehicle ap to replace a 1977 tanker. Requested $135,000.00 (upped our 5% match to close to 24% to improve the odds a bit...) Hope it works: we have around 50k and will be nowhere near the cost of a tanker without assistance for a good 8 - 10 more years... still paying off building & new pumper loans so additional loans out of the question...

    Default to much

    $266,000 total which is way high but it includes everything such as communications and dispatch equipment plus couplings needed for out autoaid agreementand other odds and ends that add up. Everything is broken down in the details portion really on $200,000 for the tanker portion. Hopefully I got throught the computer program already putting to get next years plan. just curious. thanks for the info.

    In the past, Tankers have been awarded at $250,000 so you can check your budget to see if you have a reduction.
