    Made it to peer review on an apparatus grant, we've never made it through peer so I guess I'm doing something right, now the prayers and finger crossing will be heavily in place for an 1199!!

    Found 1 Regional Commo worth $1.1mil, and a rescue tool 1st timer as well. Progress should be continuing throughout the day if it's like last week with an early posting and an afternoon one too. Hopefully...

    Thanks, this is my second one. Last year for Non-Affiliated EMS and this year for my station (Combination Fire/EMS).

    Just surfing the forums as I am currently caller #74 with an expected wait time of 23 minutes on the Federal Service Desk hotline.

    Found a Ops Radio/Pager that wasn't there earlier. So slow continued movement, going to need to stop checking mid-day and just do it all after 5p EST.

    Just found an 1199a that wasn't there last night. Large Extrication Tools, Heavy Air Bags for the big trucks, Cribbing, and Wireless Headsets for four apparatus. SAM is already up tp date. Now just waiting to do the happy dance.

    Just found 1199a for ops. A bit confusing because the main part was a foam project with an add on for personal lights for firemen (wish). All the foam equipment got zeroed out and the lights remained intact. confusing but not complaining... I figured foam project would be more of a priority in rural south dakota where water is scarce.

    Found 2 Ops, one posted on an old 1199A and a 1st timer with the Update. At least some progress is continuing.

    Default Grant funding questions for the experts

    To begin a long story (I will try to keep it short) my department began a journey about 5yrs ago to start a HAZ/MAT team. In 2011 we received monies from UASI to purchase a vehicle and equipment. The truck is on order as well as the equipment. Unfortunately we did not receive training funds in 2011 to training our Haz/mat first responders to the technician level. I wrote a grant with AFG in 2012 for 12 members to go threw a five week course fully paid for including back fill. Since then UASI stepped up and gave us funds for nine peeps to attend class. I just saw in my 1199 and it looks as if we are getting a 2012 grant for 12 members. The budget is unchanged. What do I do? We are under a time limit to get the truck and equipment in service but we could us the 12 members? AFG has not called or sent an email yet. The nine from UASI doesn't included coverage for all and it would put us in a bind with manpower but we are under the gun to get the team up. I would like some information from you all on how to approach this situation. Thanks in advance. Kards

    Since both programs deal with federal funds to accomplish the training component it will most likely be an issue. This issue should be taken to the next level. Even though you have a reference to the 1199A for 2012 there's still no guarantee of the award (it is remote though). Contact your FPS and explain the situation and get their input on the direction you should take.

    Make sure you document the date, time and person that you talk to and the info provided. Follow that up with an email summing up the conversation so there are no misunderstandings and place a copy along with their reply with your grant.

    It sounds as if you are going to get it one way or another, so that's good! But like bugle said, Federal funding may not duplicate funding from another Federal source.

    And if I might add, since you may have a choice here please remember that there is a much smaller pool of AFG money vs UASI so if you can turn back the AFG money, another fire department will benefit with a grant that previously may not have been available. I would ask AFG to add the three other members and keep enough money to cover your back fill and then return the rest. Oh and BTW thanks for thinking about the other guy also!

    What are the chances of being awarded an operations grant one round and the vehicle grant in another round? Does FEMA typically award both to the grantee in the same round?

    No, Ops and Vehicle apps live in their own worlds from Peer Review through the award. Most double awardees end up with them being announced in different rounds. Every now and again they happen together, but for the most part they don't.
