    Default Anyone know if the rest of the missed DJ's went out as of today?

    Been watching for the 1199a on replacing our 30 year old, fire prone tanker. Hope to hear some good news soon, before it catches on fire again.

    Yep they are hitting again as we speak. These are still computer DJs folks not from peer review yet. Bad news for many, if you survive until tomorrow without a letter chances are you went to peer panel. Good luck to many, condolences to those receiving letters! Some of you getting letters may wish to consider getting in class to find out how to improve your odds at getting past computer and surviving peer. I still have a few classes left before 2013 AFG will open.

    "Dear John" just struck my inbox with a denial for an ambulance. The "computer" says our fleet of ambulances are too new to be replaced. Ugh!

    On the other hand..our communications award will be in tomorrows award list! Whoooo! Hooo!

    As expected, CDJ received today for our FV application. It was to replace a 1977 gas powered tanker that has a chassis undersized for the 1500 gallons it carries... Oh well, it's the 3rd time CDJ (call volume sucks because nobody wants to call us for it...) We're looking at a very nice used tanker, so all is not lost...

    No word yet on my breathing air compressor, hoping this year is the charm... C'mon AFG!!!

    Just found a CDJ for a neighboring department. Washer/Dryer...guess the PPE will have to wait to get cleaned again for anther year.

    Good news is I got an 1199a for a partial ops and still no word on another ops and vehicle.

    Got a CDJ for our tanker. It wasn't in the portal 2 hours ago. Still have a SCBA hanging out there.

    So is today going to be it for CDJ.

    Rejected in our attempt to replace our 33 year old open cab engine. Likely reason: age of the fleet is too new (we have another 2001 engine, which we are actually still paying on).

    My DJ also shows the rejection based on the age of the fleet, age of the newest vehicle being replaced. I have a hard time believing the age of our fleet got us, as most of our trucks were retired from the military before the end of the Vietnam War. We did however have a truck we had purchased before the application period to use as a tanker. It was a 1985 model GI truck we were able to purchase at a greatly reduced price from the DOD, and we put a 5,000 gallon tank on it and a Briggs and Stratton pump.

    Looking for suggestions, but I think I see where I made at least one mistake. I asked for a tanker/tender. As my department primarily responds to wildfires, that is the vehicle we really need. If we were awarded the vehicle, then we would also use it as our pumper. So I had asked for a tanker, but in the details requested a larger than 750 gpm pump capacity. Perhaps I should have asked for a pumper, as our department does not and has never had one, and ask for a large tank on it? The main reason I have not asked for a pumper is we simply do not have the water to supply one. We have no hydrant coverage.

    I would have to have more details and see your application to evaluate further but just from what you are saying I would probably be certain that there are other errors that effected it also.

    Just a suggestion but when you get these CDJs many of you are wondering what you are doing wrong and how to correct it , I still have a couple of classes left that are going to occur in April and I am sure bc79er may have a few more as well. Knowledge is power folks and its a lot less expensive than getting a rejection notice!

    I have to agree with Kurt.....we need more info, but with what you wrote raises alot of red flags towards that CDJ.

    The DJs are boiler plate. I had one for a department with two vehicles; 1957 and 1980. Low call volume is the only explanation, but the DJ mentioned that the fleet age was not significant enough to warrant consideration.
