    Well feel the pain as well 118 Chief . Guess we are going to try for a long term loan and barbeque dinners and beg Board of Commissioners for more funding. Thing is between replacing a 40 year old building as well as the pumper that will not pass pump test , we are looking at a 400,000 dollar debt. Scary in this ecomony!!

    We run around 200 fire calls a year as well. Maybe that is the app killer for us. Been chief/president for 19 years and 35 years of service and this is the worse year yet as far a problems with no easy answers.

    have you both had someone else review your applications????
    Often times it is a small issue that is overlooked or a bit of information missing that sinks an application right out of the box.

    Have you taken advantage of getting trained in writing fire grant applications?
