    Exclamation Some good news . . .

    My husband just called the AFG Help Desk and they told him (with absolutely no hesitation, and without any coaxing) that award announcements would begin this Friday.

    Not trying to start an uproar, just passing on information . . . hope it's true!!

    I had to call the Help Desk for a question I had in regards to another matter and while I had them on the phone I couldn't help but ask. I got the same answer. "Actually, yes I do have an answer to that question. Awards will be announced this Friday" was Steve's reply. Right now I think Steve is my new best friend. I know he sure made my day!

    Talking Gentlemen Start Your Engines!

    Well, the race is on folks. I recieved the following email communication this morning from firegrants support:

    From: Kurt Bradley [mailto:KurtB@ChiefSupply.com]
    Sent: Tue 8/16/2005 12:43 PM
    To: Firegrants
    Subject: 05 AFGP Awards


    Please confirm or squash the rumor that is floating in the firehouse.com forums that people are calling your help desk to ask if the “Notice” that was posted in the Federal Register this morning is in fact the notice that was holding up these awards? They are also stating that you are stating that the awards will begin to be announced this Friday. Is this true?

    And The Response Was:

    ALL true! Awards will be announce this Friday, August 19, 2005.

    Everybody's waiting for a call. Last year, I got a call from our rep's office at 9:30 on Thursday night. I'll believe it Friday, if we get awarded.

    Jack, last year we never got a call for our award. Found out when the announcement was made on the local radio station.
