    Post AFG Grant narrative help neede for gear and SCBAs

    I am the relief secretary at our 100% volunteer fire department in rural PA and during our monthly meeting last week, our chief presented us with some information regarding a grant that would help us get some new gear. I am new to the grant writing process and would like any information that anyone could give me in writing a successful grant to help our company out.

    You can email me at ksharp2294@yahoo.com.

    Thank you so much for any help or tips.

    You are in the right place for grant gurus. I am still a guru in training but I will offer the following. If you have not already done so, go to the FEMA website and download the Program Guidance for AFG 2010 and read it up and down.

    I would also recommend you focus on one project need. What is your greatest need? PPE or SCBA? If you need both, go for PPE this year. There is also a very good podcast by Brian Vickers on the 2010 grant process. The link was in this section a week or so ago but I think you might have to go to the homepage for the link now. Good Luck to you.

    What are you trying to replace PPE or SCBA or both?

    I think he wants to replace both but I am pretty sure that PPE is top on the list.

    Default Allowable Cost

    What is FEMA allowing now on complete SCBA unit. Been several years since I wrote for this.
    Also, has anyone been successful in asking for just bottles? Our bottles are getting ready to expire.

    Price last year from the feds was $5250 per pack.
    Yes you can ask for just bottles if your packs meet the standard.

    Do you know what is the allowed amount for SCBA bottles 45min, 4500psi. And do they allow 2 per unit?
