    Except for the awards announcement this week, not much else will probably happen. AFG personnel are dealing with PR for the SAFER grants this week.

    a $2.5mil regional was handed back because of a lack of matching or something like that, so that money is back in the pot to be handed out again.

    I guess I don't understand how you can apply for and receive 2.5 mil and then turn it back? Isn't part of the process making sure you have a solid committment on the match?

    Uhm that's the way a good grant strategy in an agency is supposed to work!

    Just when I had given up all hope of getting funding for replacing a 14 year old thermal imager. Late today under a 2007 grant I found a 1199a with a new 2011 grant award number. Now I guess its a matter of getting official notification. Any one have a ball park estimate of what AFG is allowing for thermal imagers? We had requested $9,000.
    Thanks...

    FY11 was $9000 and I think the same this year. More than adequate for the Scott 320 we bought.

    We just bought two Dragers for $9,000.00 each - great units

Possibly more if more awards are turned down, a $2.5mil regional was handed back because of a lack of matching or something like that, so that money is back in the pot to be handed out again. All should be known one way or the other before the end of April to get ready for the now June app period on 2012.
    was this regional that got handed back a 2011 AFG award?

    Yes. Changed minds somewhere up there. The only drawback of the process change where they're not asking first, but overall it's better to just announce instead of let them debate for 6 months and let the reallocation deadline pass before answering.

    Cool 1199 updated.

    Our 1199a was just updated. Two TICS $18,000. So your 9,000 sounds right. We had our turnout gear rejected completely. That is OK, because we do need the TICS.

    Another AFG award for Waterford, MI. Well hopefully to be rewarded.

    Good job John. Talked to Vickey today, she told me that you are in the running. Glad to hear that all is going well for you.

    No 1199a, no peer DJ yet. When is the expected peer DJ disbursement?

    Is that 42 part of the original thought of the amount of grants or is that beyond what was thought??

    I don't get it, we haven't gotten a no and we have gotten a yes and now grants are being sparsed out one or two at a time. Just wondering if this is a good or bad thing? Asked for 200k for a new 3000gal tanker and we met all of the priorities for replacement. Converted truck, lack of safety equipment, training program in place, lack of funding. Come on feds make up my mind already!

    Email through the website and ask them to send it again, all money is gone so it's a no for everyone that hasn't gotten a yes. There may be some that get reversed depending on who turns down the awards, but would prep it for 2012 to be at the ready.
