    Well, the week is running out. Still no news about 3rd round announcements or Dear John letters. I wonder what the hold up is.

    At least someone could come up with a new treasure hunt like the eXt thing to keep us busy while we wait.

    Heart attacks are the major cause of fatalities for firefighters. I think I am going to have one due to the suspense caused by this ridiculous waiting. I know they have to be politically correct, but notifying the "Politikans"first is unreasonable. I know they approved the money for the program, but they should let the individual fire departments get the big rush of adrenaline by hearing it first. As to the "Dear John" letters, I say send them out now and stop the mystery. They obviously know who has been approved and who hasn't. Also, why aren't they calling the "maybe" applicants and asking them if they will accept a lesser amount should some element of their application not be eligible. Just wondering!!!!!

    Congratulations John!!! Please let us know what you applied for. I've still got my fingers crossed here! Everybody keeps telling me that we won't get it, I just want to prove them wrong. I try to be optimistic about the whole thing!

    WAY TO GO!! I guess you were glad you got the "Dear John (King)" phone call.

    This doesn't let you off the hook from posting on these threads. Don't forget your roots!

    Angry I hope I'm wrong

    It is a sure thing the the replies will come back in letter form
    Thats so the fire departments that really need the money to do thier jobs in thier town/cities. I live in a back woods area with a large farming ares to boot. And I'll bet we wont get a thing but we still hold up our heads and love to service oue area.
    life is good no life is great so make the most of it

    Default ROUND THREE UPDATE

    Firehouse.com will post the Round 3 recipients list at about 7 a.m. Monday morning.

    Congressional leaders, as you see above, now have the list and are beginning the notification process.

    Congratulations to all of the Departments awarded thus far. Nearly 400 departments will be awarded close to $30 million in Round 3.

    Default Thank You fellow members

    We are also a small vol. dept. in a rural area. I have been able to take a deep breath finally. We applied for the Fire Operations and Firefighter Safety Grant. The majority of the grant is for air packs and a cascade system, some turnouts for members of the dept. that do not have any. A PPV fan and some training aids. This award will allow us to complete a project that would otherwise take over 10 years to accomplish with our current funding. We applied last year and were unsuccessful. Many said why bother to try again this year and my response was "If we don't try, we would be fools!, what have we got to lose?". I wish everyone the best of luck and hope to see many more of you with the answers you're waiting for soon. Maybe this process with start rolling now.
    Good Luck!

    Can someone please tell me how I would know if I have an ext and what it is? Is it e-mailed? Sorry, but this is my first time doing this and nobody here at my dept can tell me anything about it b/c they have never applied for one until I did. Congrats to all of you who received grants- Be very proud of yourselves b/c it's not easy!!!Has anyone received a turn down yet? I am with everyone else, wearing my computer out!!! BE SAFE TO ALL!!!!!! And again Congratulations to all of you who have received your funding!!!!

    Default ext

    Nobody knows if the ext thing has any real merit. We did get the grant and yes the ext is on the application. I have noticed a few posts from ones getting the grant without the ext.

    If you want to have a look, go to the application and enter your logon & password. On the lower part of the page you will see a link to see if an application has been started for your department. Click that link and then find your department. The ext is there will be visable only from that page, it is not within the application itself.

    I would not put too much stock in the ext thing yet. I do feel the 1199 may be a better indicator. Since these started going out well after the peer review, I doubt if FEMA would send us to the bank to get a form signed then tell us that we did not make the first cut. That being said, only a small percent of the 1199 notices have gone out. I know it is hard to wait (you should have seen me yesterday) but good news will be delivered to hundreds of departments over the next few months.

    Hang in there.
