First step for any comm. grant is to talk to your state EMA or whoever has the state interoperability plan. AFG will require approval from them before approving your grant app.
Last year we received all new portables and mobiles and were awarded close to 30k to fund it. Another dept a few states away got funded for the same number of portables and had to spend over 100k due to the need for astro digital radios
We are in the process of building out a voter system with multiple  receivers and a 4.9ghz tie link system. our expected cost will be in the area of 60k for the whole VHF conventional equipment & installation package. We have gotten baseline prices from a couple of vendors that were very similar in $$ amount.

Looking at staying VHF but going narrow band. We talked to IEMA a few years back so understand the needs. We were quote $470K roughly to go completely digital and and be P-25 compliant

We were reduced in the price of the SCBAs as well as the number. Reduced from 15 to 9 packs. Accepted the reduction with the 10 questions almost a month ago, but still no notice of award.Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)
Aggressive does not have to equal stupid.
