    New Update for a 1st Timer on an Ops for SCBA. Guess I'll take a lunch break and run the list...

    Got new 2012 reference # on my 1199A about 4 weeks ago. Nothing since. Any idea how long before AFG gets to the next step in the process?

    Not too bad so far found that SCBA for $99k, $47k on another for 14 AEDs, and half of a pair of regional radio apps for $606k. Probably will keep rolling them out over the afternoon so keep the fingers crossed...

    Same here ofire2500, we received a new 2012 reference number on our 1199A about 9 weeks ago. Nothing yet, our SAM account is active, I called them at least 4 weeks ago to make sure. Still waiting here patiently for the official call.....

    Just heard from one of ours that they're on this week's list, and their 1199A was posted before Xmas. Had some SAM issues but they were cleared up back in early January. No real rhyme or reason to it. I thikn Sly said his regional training was coming this week and that 1199A was just last week.

    Of course it is Dr. Sly, so maybe his get rushed through while the rest of us have to stand by in the wings because we aren't as worthy....

    My Regional is apparently on this weeks award list, got a call about it...but my Ops was posted before the Regional and has not yet been awarded. Never know sometimes!

    Happy to see an award either way.

    You get AFG grants? Thought it was only SAFER

    What kind of software you going for?

    Got the call today from Sen. Durbin's office so I guess its official. New medium duty rescue coming for Carbondale, IL. It was 4 weeks from 1199A to phone call. Hopefully an award letter soon! Thanks Kurt Bradley for the training and help over the last 5 years, it has paid off several times.

    Well, I did get the 5th SAFER R&R for the vol department a few weeks ago. LED Sign & advertising money. I think I'm done there, running out of ideas! I'm really excited about the EHP environmental review for the sign.

    Received the 2nd SAFER hiring grant this year as well for the career department. First grant ran out this year where we hired 3. We're keeping them and hiring 3 more. Once SAFER is over, we're keeping them too.

    Just got the call from one of our senators offices saying we got the full amount we requested for PPE and SCBA. Looks like it does pay to apply for these grants. By the way I am now officially 1 for 1 writing grants. Looking like it is time to retire so I can go out with a perfect record.

    Congratulations but retire? I don't think so. If this was your first win you are going to find its like eating Lay's Potato Chips; Nobody can eat just one! That taste of free money is now in your brain and I practically guarantee you will be trying for more.

    You are definitely correct, we have already applied for a state grant since then. It is funny what a new fire chief can do for a volunteer organization. Our department has never applied for a grant before at any level. We just relied on fundraisers and our county to supply what we needed. Now in the last year with a new fire chief we have upgraded a lot of equipment on now are starting to work on grants. I think we got more lucky than anything because I was assigned to write the grant. I was told a week before it was due that we should try to write this grant. I would actually like to try to attend a class somewhere to learn what to put in these grant applications. So if anyone would know of anything in the Midwest somewhere I would we willing to travel quite a ways.
