Oh the waiting game with the Safer 1199a and waiting for the announcement to drop. Well it could be worse. Hoping for the AFG grant to go with the Safer Grant. Maybe a New Years Surprise.
Congrats kurt, got another dept. doing happy dance this morning also for turnout gear (thank you Lord). 18 sets.
They have the list up now. Get to clicking
Congrats to T Cook and Moundsville VFD 45K for Exhaust system
Congrats. good job
OK come on FEMA the hangovers have worn off time to start updating 1199as again . My left index (mouse clicker) finger is becoming atrophied from non-use.:rolleyes:
Ran mine too and nothing. Maybe later today
Got an 1199 about 4 weeks ago, got a call from Senator Dick Durbin's office today. Looks like an award coming for some bunkers, wildland gear and rescue air bags, about $36k in grant money.
I am need of some thoughts. This will be the 4th year in a row we have applied for a pumper. Yet we have not gotten the DJ yet. The pumper we are trying to replace has been getting a little worse every year. Finally this year it has decided not to draft while on an incline or fill the tank. It is in need of about $6,000.00 + in repairs. It is a 1978 2 man cab. After the long drawn out explanation, is there any addendum available to send about this apparatus not being in service. Thanks for any help.
Based on what you wrote implies that you have more than one pumper. Is that the case? If so, how many pumpers do you have and what are their ages?
8800Chief if you have failed 4 years in a row with your newest pumper being a 1998, you need to get a professional involved with you to try to determine what exactly you are doing wrong.There are several of us in here regularly, who can help you. I can be reached at 863-551-9598.;)
Unfortunately, IMHO the project you should have been going for was the replacement of the 28 year old homemade tanker. This would have been a better selll since you have only 1 tanker and the safety issues operating such a vehicle.
8800 Chief, You should be applying to replace 2 trucks with one. Put in for a tanker, upgrade the pump to a 1500 gpm.
We got our 1199 on 11/28 and it was returned to FEMA in a matter of days. How long will it typically take to get the award notice?
I don't know if I skipped over the answer to this, but where would an update 1199A be within the application itself if not on the status screen? I religiously have been checking my account every Wednesday-Friday if anyone could respond I'd appreciate it
Unfortunately it comes down to wording in my experience. I agree with ktb9780 and onebugle that you should be applying for a tender as this is your best option. We were funded our 2nd year applying to replace our homemade unit. Be sure to note the safety issues in you narrative! Just a though, but maybe a pumper/tanker combo unit would be a compromise?
