My department applied for $15,000.00 for items under the fire operations/fire safety category of the Federal Fire Act Grant. We applied for a thermal imaging camera thats cost $9800.00, and a computer and firehouse software program so my department can start doing and submitting its NFIRS reports via the internet. Our state has set a deadline for all fire companies in the State of Maryland to be computerized and submitting their state and national fire reports by year 2003 or we may lose our state funding. We have our fingers crossed. Good luck to everybody else.
