    Unhappy New Guy Question

    I am asking this question not knowing all that I need to.
    My FD has never applied for a grant that I'm aware of, What should a non-ranking FF do to get the "ball" rolling in his/her department?
    Thanks

    First off a word to the wise. Ask your Chief about the grant, he may or may not have put in for one but at least he will say yea or nea. It's always best to have things blessed from the guy with the most bugles to blow. Also with most grants there is a match 50/50 or 90/10. This money has to come from somewhere, either budgeted or by a fundraiser. Most every firefighter wants to help their dept. just run it through the dept. Chief so as not to ruffle any feathers, if he blesses it carry on, if he gives it the thumbs down, drop it.
