    At this rate, the gum and bandages holding together the equipment will need a grant for replacement.

    Congrats jbuss, autopulses were argued about last year and pulled from a couple of awards, so that's a nice catch this year.

    I wrote for piston driven devices, or a Lucas Type Machine, so it is different than the autopulse. I wasnt sure if it would go through, but it did! Def. a help in a community where we run two man squads with very limited backup

    Marketing people hate this, but like Band-Aid I get caught using autopulse to mean the whole offering of automated CPR compression devices.

    HHHMMMMH looks like something may be brewing at ASFG. I chekced ll my apps today looking for 1199as and almost without exception, every department that I keep thinking has a good strong application but that had not received an award or 1199a update by now, was asked to "verify profile" today. Never seen this many all on the same day.Maybe they are getting ready to really start letting them loose. Keep fingers crossed folks I think we are about to see some movement quickly.

    Glad to hear that prediction. I had to "verify profile" also...

    Think it's just that time, every app I logged into (~250 different departments) either late Thursday or Friday had the Profile link. Although since there was little movement last week it hopefully things will move quick. Figures if it does since I'll be on the way to San Diego for FH World and wandering around the floor Wed-Thursday so no time to check until late night EST. But there are worse things, as long as they show up don't really care where I'm at....

    If you don't see "verify profile" is that code for "you scored low"? I see that message all of the time on my 2009 grant, but I haven't seen it recently for my 2012 application

    Oh by all means no guy. The only "code" that means you scored low is if you receive a computer DJ. Keep your fingers crossed no news is good news still right now.

    It will appear as a whole page as soon as you log-in and you will have to click through it to get to the status page.

    Anybody know if, or when the big load of computer DJ's will come out? Needless to say after being turned down every year so far, nobody on my dept is holding their breath for an award, except me of course.... Pour me a triple bartender....maybe by the time i have recovered from falling off my stool i will have some good news.

    For those of you wondering what the "Verify your profile" screen looks like. I got it on my 2009 grant. I haven't seen this recently on my 2012 vehicle grant though.

    Rumor is, before end of this month; but don't hold your breath. My goodness guy you have been denied every year? Definitely time for you to get in a class and find out what the heck you are doing wrong here. I've been in Kansas on multiple occasions teaching for a number of years; don't know where you are at but, holy smoke quit wasting your apps and find out how to do this right.

    I would love to go to one of the grant writing classes! However, most of the rest of my department has pretty well given up on this grant, and would most likely not be willing to in their words "dump any more money" into trying for it. I just took over writing the grants last year, and did not have any grant writing experience prior to that. I am dedicated to getting something pushed through on this grant, with the age of our equipment (Newest PPE circa 1996, newest truck is a 1993) i dont see why we shouldnt get funding, its just a matter of getting it to look right on paper.

    Would any of your members go into a fully involved structure fire without being first trained how to wear and use SCBA? Its not just a matter of "getting it to look right on paper"; it is a lot more complicated than that. You have to demonstrate "need" and just because it is old, does not mean you have need. Just as any fireman needs the proper tools to execute a proper attack; a grant writer needs the proper tools to do the job also.Too long to explain in an email but I have time today if you would like to call me and I will be glad to further discuss what you may be doing wrong. There is no cost to you but, you have to make the first move. 863-551-9598.
