    Default Regional AFG - Mobile Live Fire Training?

    Had a proposal come in recently and trying to figure out where it falls in the realm of applicability...

    The proposal was for a regional application (>10 departments) for mobile live fire training equipment to be used across the county. My initial thought is the project would qualify (as would a fixed training facility). Anyone have experience with this type of application that they would like to share? Suggestions?

    Many thanks.

    Has to be mobile to qualify, and yes they are as a regional effort.

    Only thing is if your #2 matches the county that my 79 is from then no dice. 2 schools in close proximity to your neck of woods with burn facilities. They don't fund these unless you're about 100 miles from a facility.

    Thanks Brian, good eye. Not for us, though - we're content with new building just up the road.

    I saw the pics but didn't get past there last time I was up, looked like a nice setup. We'll be up visiting for a few days over the summer this year, might try and wander my way into a class or something. Need to challenge FF2 and some others. Probably won't get the pass from the wife on that though....

    I talked til I was blue in the face to get our county fire coordinator to get a mobile trainer. He's dead set against it, eventhough it the best thing for the communities we serve.
