    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.

    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.
