    Found a odd grouping, hose, PPE, and SCBA. And another SCBA that's on the awards list, haven't been following since the password changed. Puts us over $10mil awarded and pending for 2013, hopefully more to come...

    After travelling 18 hours to get back from PA ( hell could have drove this faster) I found another 4 this morning. Looks like they have been busy and from what I hear it will remain busy here for awhile.

    Did some snipe hunting of 1st timers while walking someone through SAM.gov over the phone, 1st timer no email so it's a today posting.

    Did first timers and FR check, found 5 total so far. Looks like they've turned on the faucet more than a drip since Friday.

    Also word is that a tanker 1199A was found on Monday so there's slight truck movement.

    Gentleman,

    I have been lurking for years and now I need some advice. Found an 1199A yesterday for our grant. However we had applied for two items, a compressor and exhaust capture system for both of our stations. When I went into the budget part of the grant they zero out the exhaust system and left the compressor funded as is. Is there any chance of pleading my case to get the exhaust system added back into the grant? And who would I plead my case too?

    If the application has been adjusted to reflect a "zeroed out" item, it generally means that that category did not go to panel review. Since that is the case, there would be little room for argument since it wasn't reviewed for a score.

    I'm going to suspect that your exhaust was cut due to sleeping quarters or occupancy issues. Modifications to Facility projects have some strict scoring guidelines. What is your occupancy and sleeping quarter situation?

    Thank you for the input. Both of our stations are staffed 27/7. That was our justification for need the system. I thought I had a good narrative with mid 1990’s vintage trucks and the fact our exercise equipment and gear are all in the apparatus bays.

    I also went back and looked at the application and question #8 what is the level of occupancy for the facility you wish to modify? The Full-time 24/7 box was selected.

    If it's 0'd then it was either pulled by computer or by Peer, in the case of the computer the narrative wasn't even read it was just the numbers that made it not as competitive. So something in the statistical answers to the exhaust request didn't sync up.

    Default 1199a

    Found an 1199A to put equipment on a small rural department's first engine. Checked Monday and found this one this afternoon.

    The engine was donated and this grant should equip it from top to bottom. Their next closest engine is about 30 minutes away so this is a very big deal for them.

    Based upon the experiences of the members in this forum....

    From the time that your 1199A form is accepted by the system, on average, how long does is take to get an official award notification?
