As was already mentioned...Our DJ stated fleet age as a consideration as well. Average age of fleet was 22 years, but vehicle we were trying to replace was 44 years old. Sometimes I wish we were back to before computers as they don't take any factors into account and just react to raw data.
Given that there are less than a quarter of the funds in AFG OPS and Safety left available, I was wondering about partial awards. I've heard that it is possible FEMA will contact a department and ask whether they want a partial award. How does this process work? Is their an opportunity for a department to clean "the bottom of the barrel" as funds run out? No rejection notice yet on equipment or PPE. Hoping to get something from FEMA.
At the FDIC session AFG officials said that the peer DJ's would be out in the next couple of weeks.
