    Talking received a grant from the FireAct

    We just were notified that we have received a $244,000 grant for the purchase of new SCBA's for the whole department.

    yeah, I just heard that earlier (before the official notification came out) while chillin' over in Blue Hills. Congrats! Too bad I didn't get to see Billy-Bob today.

    Are you guys going to issue out masks with the new Scott packs or are you just going to use the ones on the trucks? I heard a while back that you (Windsor) wanted to get the voice amplifiers...do you know if you are going to get those with your packs?

    If you see Chief Lewis before I do, tell him "Ryan says he'll buy you a garage-key to celebrate!" LOL Inside joke.

    Default GRANT MONEY

    As far as I know we are still going to issue masks to each member. I understand that we might be able to get the voice amplifiers for some of the packs but I will ask.

    This grant was the work of two people A.C. Smith and Paul Goldberg who both wrote the grant along with others that helped.

    Yeah, I was figuring Paul wrote the grant.

    Congrats! I'm still anxiously awaiting the one we submitted for a radio system. I don't know how much longer I cam keep this low band / vehicle repeater thing running without having a nervous breakdown.

    We have the SCOTT Radiocom voice amplifier & radio interface for our line officers. They absolutly KICK ***. They have a "speakerphone" of sorts for conversing with the people in front of you and your crew. They also have an interface that acts a speaker/mic for a portable radio. It is a great system!
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
