    Casco, they probably only told you to avoid having you go through the amendment and emergency purchase process since they knew it was for naught anyway. It's been done before by other reps.

    My edjumicated guess on why the CDJ's aren't released is that it doesn't really matter when they are. If there was a question of waiting for the grant and diving in to buy something now instead of when they come out 2 months from now, what's the financial reasoning behind the application? How valid can it truly be if 6 months ago the app says no chance of purchase, and now there's a chance if you only knew the result of the app. If it's true need, then it's going to be a resubmit for 2013 if not funded so no real need to know sooner than later.

    Mainly just playing general Devil's Advocate of course, we have several in odd binds that will go to extreme measures such as creating a bond vote for the residents or something because they have no water supply truck at all and can't push the envelope another year. Or are without PPE, and other extreme cases.

    Just a quick question since I was out of the grant loop during my retirement. We received an 1199 for new breathing air compressor and, in my former life with the other department, would then anticipate a set of questions to soon follow. Have not seen that this time. Is there a change in the process? Thanks for any info you can provide.

    BB3939,

    FF 1, FF 2, HazMat Ops, and Driver Training. Cost per population / run, was probably to high.

    Emergency purchase; Local School Adult Ed Program is sponsoring a FF 1 and 2 class. School serves 4 towns and found funding through the bigger school budget.

    Basic level training app not making it into Peer? That doesn't seem to make much sense. Even the Tech Rescue/HazMat Tech ones we've done have made Peer the last 2 years. Obviously don't know about this year yet but still can't see why a FF1/2 app wouldn't make Peer. Only way I can think of is if it was marked that you're already at 100% FF1/2 which means training funds aren't needed. If you didn't, then 'tis a bit baffling I must say, but they did cut a chunk of money out of the program coming into 2012 so the stats be changing...

    Wow Casco18......They cut everything out of my grant but training. They are even funding training for rescue equipment that we requested funding for and they turned down??? I do plan on appealing that. I don't see no need on training on equipment that not even the first department in our county own. I would love to talk to one of the experts on here about how I need to go about that.

    Couple have, we have 2 SCBA regionals with 1199As, and onebugle's regional AED came through last week. Overall not too many since the paper apps are in review this week so that's why not much money has been allocated or awarded so far. Just in case some of the paper apps bump the online ones already scored back in August. Plus most are communications and they have to go through the states for approval so they take longer also.

    Still hopeful for our Aerial grant. City is trying to figure out what to do in the mean time since our Snorkel is now a paperweight. Anyone heard of any apparatus grants thus far? seems odd that there hasn't been any thus far.

    ffb, congrats on the find.

    wlfire55 - if you've never been awarded before you'll get an email from DHS along with a new link in between the View Application and the Grant/Revoke Access links in the dropdown menu on the righthand side when you log in. If you've been awarded before, odds are it the 2012 EMW- number will show on the View 1199A link for the first year you were awarded. It isn't unheard of to get a new Update 1199A even if awarded before, some have had the View on the old award turn into an Update, and others have had the a new Update show on the current application.

    Sure looks like this year you need to be east of the Missouri river to get a grant. HaHa was just looking in the awards so far and trying to stay positive since as some have said it is still very early.
