    Default What is your station applying for in the 2005 FEMA Grant

    Just got bored, figured I'd make a poll to see who's trying to get what.


    We're going for a Hi Pres. Cascade System

    We applied for a Type IV apparatus to replace a '79 mini-pumper/rescue truck with numerous problems and to say the least noncompliant.
    Good luck to everyone!

    Applied for 30 new Scott NXG2 SCBA w/ spare bottles. Just merged with another department and we're trying to standardize our equipment. It's the second damned year we've tried - turned down last year. I can't seem to understand why - One of the most rapidly growing municipalities in the state, and we can't even standardize

    Can't understand why you're turned down? Or why the merged departments can't standardize?

    Why we were turned down...Hired a grant writer and everything..

    Maybe it was because the grant has been so much? well over 100,000, but we still have so many packs to switch over...

    Amount had nothing to do with it. And you can read some goodies out of your previous denials as well. Article #4, probably due out in August sometime, I'll explain that fully.

    Article #2 appearing sometime next week will hold some secrets about projects so I won't spoil the fun from that. Firehouse needs its MemberZone dues.

    Grant writer <> success if the grant writer does not understand the nature of the program. No other program is run like this, so the average grant writer does not have any experience writing for this program, and if they do not have a feel for the fire service, that's a double whammie. Other government and private grant programs are based on merit alone and not against each other. Could writers with outside experience succeed? Sure can. Are there good ones out there? Plenty, and I'm happy to say that I keep in contact with most of them, and we help each other out.

    But there are plenty that may come swooping in claiming to know what they're doing. Prior to hiring any grant writer (including me) you should first know all you can about the program, and then ask what they know about the program and who they've worked for in the past. No one will ever bat 1.000 as a grant writer, that's a given. But they ought to at least be able to explain why or why not what you have as an application has a reasonable chance at success. I'm not saying who you hired hasn't done all of that, I have no idea who it was, and not really concerned with it. Anyone of the rest of us could have done it with the same results. Without knowing all of the specifics I'd find out in a full analysis like I do for other clients, I can't say with any certainty how or why the denial happened.

    Catch me offline sometime (IM, email) if you have other questions.

    - Brian
