    Dude,
    That is what I am working on now. I still have no word on my quick attack/brush truck application, but am proceeding on attempting to replace my 38 year old tanker.

    There are some tankers out there and someone should surely send you at least one successful narrative.

    I want to see it too since I am here in Tampa writing for one.

    Also, is your Alabama department the one that Dr. Harry Carter wrote about a few months ago here on Firehouse?

    my email is jam24u@windstream.net or brownvillevfd@windstream.net.

    If he wrote about our department it is news to me and all other members. Do you have a link to that article? I am almost certain it wasnt. I could not find anything by doing a search for his name and our department name. Emails sent, good luck and hope this give you all some ideas.

    Check the leadership section in the community toolbar above every page here. I'm sure you would know if it was you.

    Thanking you for forwarding the narrative. I am assuming you sent it.

    Hey Jim; Are you writing a grant for the class and someone else grades it the next day so all of you can discuss if it would be a wining app. or are you writing one for real to turn in at the end of the month? Just wondering if that was part of the class. Stay safe in Tampa. Never been there.

    By the time the attendees finish today they will have basically a complete narrative (fine tuning remains) for the 2010 AFG. While at the seminar they write their narratives followed by 2 mock peer reviews. The peer reviews are done by 2 different groups providing the writer between 10-12 reviews of their narrative with suggestions for improvement.

    This style of seminar has proven affective as the Reno Gang to date has a 94% success rate. The Tampa Clan should be no different with their overall success for 2010.

    yes, what onebugle just said. each day we work on the application we intend to submit for 2010. then we are assigned group numbers. group one exchanges their narratives with group 3 one day and group 4 the next and so forth. We attempt to grade each narrative we read in four categories. Score 0-100 and average out the numbers. I read maybe 5 different narratives yesterday and will read around 4-5 today and score them. Then our group gets our reviewed and graded narratives back for each of us to go over.

    Remember, you have to have a thick skin when this is going on. it is not personal. amazing how some score you high and some others score you low. the trick is to get some of the real gurus like sly, erin, dusty and jeff lebeda to review your narrative and pay close attention to what they say. I decided to change my request from a used tanker to a new tanker about 30 minutes ago.

    anyway this happens everyday. the other benefit is the discussions in person like what happens here on Firehouse. A lot to learn. Some like Kurt stress cost benefit formulas, some do not. To say it is interesting is an understatement.
    As Sly, who has been a reviewer explained, the worse narrative he reads here is 100 times better than what he often sees in the actual peer review.
    That's why we miss Onebugle, Catch and others of that caliber. They would effectively double the knowledge being passed around. Especially when they get in discussions with each other. makes you want to have a audio recorder with you.

    I'm also looking for a winning narrative for a tanker for this years grant. Need to replace a 1977 homemade one. Thanks!
