    Default How many AFG Grants have you been awarded

    I was curious as to how many AFG grants departments have been awarded since the beginning. I'm not looking for safer or fire prevention, just the number of regular AFG grants.

    1 3/4

    O3 Turnout, SCBA's, Hose, Nozzles, Tic and Refurbish a truck
    09/10 Regional Radio Interoperability (didn't write but was part of planning and implementation)

    missed on 3 others (Rescue/Ric Truck) so I went through local, state grants as well as private, commercial donations and raised the money to refurbish a surplus property vehicle.

    Currently holding my breath on a new Pumper.

    2003 - PPE, 4 SCBA to replace old Scott 2's
    2006 - Exhaust extraction system, Fire & CO alarm system, Station generator
    2007 - PPE, replaced remaining SCBA's
    2009 - Attack, backup, supply hose, Master stream device, hose & pump testing equip, hose rack
    2010 - TIC (Reduction & 1199A so far...)


    Applied in '04 for portable generators, portable pumps, multi-gas meter & radiation detection meter
    Applied in '05 for multi-gas meter, TIC & station generator
    Applied in '08 for vehicle (water tender)
    Applied in '09 for vehicle (water tender)


    Applied in '10 for regional communications for 6 FD's: still awaiting (hopeful)

    Received multi-gas meters on CEDAP award in '06
    Received portable generators on local EnCon award
    Received portable pumps with excess funds...

    So the only thing left on my original list is a 2,000 gallon water tender - AFG: you reading this???

    AFG's been good to us - we'd still be using 3/4 boots, Scott 2's and 25 year old hose without the awards, not to mention being in the dark for the December ice storm without them!

    Assisted neighboring FD last year who received 1199A and municipality turned down a $57,000.00 award for PPE & SCBA

    Assisted 2 neighboring FD's this year with PPE applications (still awaiting word...)
