    Any departments in WV looking at regional grants? We applied for one here in Raleigh County. Nothing in the mail here yet.

    We have talked about doing one for two years now we are hoping this year might be the year we get everyone on board.

    Just found an updated 1199A that must have appeared in the last 24 hours or so. Looks like a new compressor/cascade/fill station may just be in our future!

    Did you get an email or call from your congressman?

    Just got back from the mountains to find 3 more 1199As posted between Monday and Tuesday. 2 more first timers; one an EMS agency first timer for Oxygen Generation system!

    Also learned that a large metropolitan department received a call from FEMA advising that they will be awarded for a $2M+ exhaust application but wanted confirmation that they could complete the award within 1 year or no award!

    Not yet, only found the 1199A. Hope to hear from them in the near future though.

    Guess that means I can slow down checking mine so often. It will be a while before they hit another ems in the same state.
    What did you write for?

    Update 1199A with no email sent yet posted this morning. Looks like they started early today. Good thing I skipped checking yesterday, more time to finish garage projects...

    Just found a couple hundred G's worth of SCBA heading up your neck of the woods, so that's 1 PPE and 1 SCBA and still not to the C's yet...long day ahead....but in a good way.

    Default Is this true?

    I just saw an 1199A for one of our applications with an "FV" in the number, is that our apparatus grant?

    Thanks Brian- that's amazing! I can't tell you how much this will mean to us. How long typically between 1199s and award notifications?

    With the changes this year on the 10Qs I think we're down to about 2-3 weeks. What kind of buggy?

    That would be great- I will hold my excitement until then.

    It's a 2500 gal tanker/tender... replacing an old converted milk truck that we have, it's on borrowed time.

    Nice. Lots of those still out there, bunch of runway fuel tankers too. We did a decent amount of apps to replace such buggies, hopefully some pop. They're all on borrowed time IMHO.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for everyone else. Ours was getting to the point where we had to get parts fabricated, and it was just an accident waiting to happen. If theirs are anything close, I know they'll need them too.

    Great, the rolling 1199As. That will teach me to check them all early in the morning. Found 2 SCBA and a PPE that time around, guess I'll have to run through the list again...

    Found an "Update" 1199A for another department which was not there this AM. Looks like a $965,000 ladder tower for them.
