    I wrote our AFG for 11, and was aware that we received one in 05; However, I was not aware that is was not closed out. The person that was responsible for this grant is no longer active, and apparently most of her paperwork is gone with the wind. I have managed to find parts of this grant here and there (there was a total lack of organization and management prior to our current administration). I have finished the paperwork to close out this grant, (after waiting for FEMA to grant my access), and Im waiting on a check from our treasurer. Does this automatically disqualify us, or since I have made them aware of the situation, do we still have a chance for 2011?

    Having gone through a similar problem, they are pretty good as long as you are trying to fix the problem. I would ask whoever you are dealing with at AFG just to be sure.

    Is this something you discovered on your own or did AFG call you to remind you about it?

    We were called in 2007 to close out our 2005 grant. "You really want to get this closed out" And we were happy as received $295000 for a pumper tanker.

    I was asked today about what can we apply for next year. After I thought about it a minute it dawned on me that is was not a bad question if the talk of getting the grant cycle back on track holds true.

    I was asked by my chief the same question last weekend.
    I told him I would like to apply for a washer and dryer for the department.
    Any recommendations on brands and sizes to get that can handle washing turnout gear?

    I know there are many brands out there but look for one that can handle 2-3 sets of turnout gear at a time max. One brand I see constantly mentioned is Milnor I beleive. There are others on here more familiar that can help you out here.

    I have been looking at Mar 6,7,8 but, not getting enough responses from past attendees to justify setting aside a block of rooms there yet; I would be committing myself to a $5K debt if I booked it now. Will be making a command decison in January but unless more come forwad indicating a commitment to attend, I may not be able to pull it off this year. Stay tuned.

    Warren they started doing tech reviews while the peer review was going on. There have been 1199a updates going on now for two weeks. I have found 4-5 already. Mostly regional projects and trucks.
