    neiowa:

    How do you know that? From just looking at all of the data, there is nothing to indicate career/volunteer other than the name of the department. By looking at the excel spreadsheet and reading the list of names, the bulk of Iowa departments that got awards were volunteer departments. There are also several from the northeast corner of the state that were fortunate.

    BTW, where in NE Ia are you? I'm just across the river in WI.

    neiowa: never mind - found your website. Nice refurb on the dump truck/wildland truck. Don't expect the rotator light masts to last too long, ours didn't. Lost one to a tree branch, the other to someone using it as a grab handle.

    neiowa,
    Brian, Kurt and myself have been told all summer by numerous different sources the SAFER grants will equal 130 total departments. Given that low number, not that many volunteer OR combo departments will be getting funded. The reason for that is the fact it's a 5 year grant program.

    Also, I know of at least one more volunteer department that will be funded in another upcoming round! But, remember, the primary goal of this grant was the Hiring, then the recruit/retention. Hiring will get much more of the funding.

    Good Luck to everyone waiting...

    Safer/IAFF

    Made mast them to be easily replaceable. No trees in the corn/bean/grass fields anyhow.
