    I also got our Congressional calls today confirming our award for 12 SCBA's. Thanks to everyone here offering words of encouragement and advise. Thanks to FEMA AFG for all you do.
    Thanks....

    the longer this goes the less optimistic I am about getting our turnout gear this year. LOL. Barkeep, I'll take a crown/coke!

    I think it is safe to say that if you have not yet received an 1199A with a 2012 Reference number, your chances of an award in this cycle are extremely slim. With the amount of money awarded and those we know are pending, it seems as if the money has just about been fully exhausted.

    As in all years, there will be a few supplemental awards trickling out, but I'd suspect almost all of this year's funding has been allocated.

    That's what i'm starting to tell myself. We still have not received a DJ, but i'm not optimistic.

    Any idea when 2013 will open? I might need a little time to "get back in shape" after being in here so long.

    Well as long as we are all sitting around waiting for peer DJs I need to ask a question. Any of you priced or actually bought a 4-door 5 man cab 3000 gal/500- 749gpm tanker lately? I need a ballpark price that is relatively accurate. OK folks this time I'm not answering questions I am asking one so time to give back a little since it seems every manufacturer or seller is afraid to put their prices online in plain view any more.
