    Quick question. How long does it take for the award to come once you have received and answered the 5 questions?

    For us it was 15 days, but this will vary from award to award. We just got everything straightened around with SAM the same day that we received the questions. If everything is set with SAM then just sit back and wait.

    A little birdie told me we were on the award list for this Friday, but I don't recall receiving my five questions email yet, unless it was part of the 1199 process.

    Received notice from Senator today of a big regional for our county for portable radios. Doing the Happy Dance!!! Big thanks to Kurt for his wisdom. Attended his class last year in Johnstown PA. It helped immensely. If you've never been, make arrangements to attend one NOW.

    The Johnstown PA class is really paying off. Glad we could host it.

    Did you remember the award we received last week in your tally Kurt? I cannot say thank you enough for EVERYTHING you have done for us. Our department is a completely different place since the first time we hosted your seminar. Thank you so much.

    Found a nice county FD SCBA 1199A, packs, masks, and RIT SCBA for $250k. Finally some higher priority ones. Maybe tomorrow I'll have time to do the whole list, running out of hours in the day. Hopefully can hire some good additional office help next month, last time around invited 24 to interview, 3 showed, hired person didn't show 3 of the 6 days scheduled. Wouldn't think it would be so hard to find good help in this economy....

    2 more SCBA, a PPE, and pleasantly surprised like Kurt about an exhaust that also showed up today. Definitely a nice start to the week.

    Just found a 2012 reference for SCBA and TIC however the SCBA has been zeroed out and the grant reduced to $9000. Would it be possible to contact them and plead the case to get the full grant reinstated?

    Most likely the SCBA didn't make peer and therefor won't be eligible to get reinstated. What was the age of the SCBA and have you received an SCBA previously?

    We requested 14 which would bring us to 100% compliance for year 2002 or newer for all riding positions. We have a total of 26. We have 10 that were bought between 2002 and 2006 including 4 on a grant in 2003 before I took over the grants for our department and 6 that were bought along with our aerial. I stated in the narrative that these 10 would remain in service. The remaining packs are a mix of a couple low hose from the 80's and the rest were bought 1994-2000.

    Your narrative justification is a moot point as it was not reviewed if your SCBA was cut. I'd suspect that with > 50% of your SCBA being less than 2 NFPA cycles old, your score was quite low.

    While not your "fault," back in 2003 there should have been a 100% solution for the project, not just 6.

    The nice thing about the way the new scoring works, you previously would have not gotten your TIC, but now only the non-priority items are cut.
