    Lot of work to do and a short time to do it in. There is someone on here that can help you but I will let him come forward. Havenít heard from him today. I think he was one of many that went to Tampa so he may be catching up on his homework or in the dog house.

    I have all the communications equipment / system put together we just need to fine tune it. I've never looked at a regional grant so I have no idea what info I need to fill it out.

    The Dog is a compliment in this context. The coffee should be a Starbucks blend of Pikes Place and Verona.

    He's not kidding.

    Ken, you will like this. Once my regional award appeared, it just says equipment $269,000. Not vehicle or PPE, just equipment. Since our department is not manned or have a phone or website, vendors have been dropping off brochures or letters at the stations door. Even Fedexing company information to the mayor. Some have even been contacting our mutual aid partners trying to find out who they should talk to.

    Every day.

    You cannot blame them and I don't. Frankly it is how they eat. I would do the same.

    I always like to ask the question of where they have been prior to me getting a check in hand? Especially if I was asking for information to put the application togther to begin with and they could not take the time to bother with just a little ole guy like me out here in rural boondocks America!.

    Rural boodocks America, heck I forgot that you have been to my neck of the woods haven't you. Well, to you Kurt, I guess that since we don't have a Starbucks, we probably wouldn't even rank as being called rural we are just called out in the sticks.

    I think everyone already has me phone number. I've taken care of our equipment for the last 10-12 years and almost all of the grant issues.

    Question about matching funds for a regional grant. would it be a 5% match that my depatment falls into or would it be 10% match because of the population the county has?

    No, it is the total population of the departments you are writing for.

    Scott I seen you removed your phone number from your post. I went back and removed it from my quote also. Just helping you out. I have a communications grant I am seating on until after the APCO conference at the end of the month. Wanted to look at as much equipment as I can to make a good choice. With that said wondering what name brand you are going with. Thanks !
