    EMS BLS Transports
    EMS ALS Transports
    Accidents w/o Extrication
    Vehicle Extrications
    Other Rescue

    Just kidding! But, I did get everything in but the narrative. So, just spend some time tuning up the wording, and we'll be ready to play.

    Good luck to all.

    Nothing wrong with being in early, I have 130 ready to roll except for this jacking with the statistical info. Oh well, the more we give them one year, the easier it gets each year after this.

    Submitted Vehicle App #4 and Operations App #22 a few minutes ago. Glad to see a few folks turned right around with the call volume changes and got-r-dun too.

    Nice to see the App #'s themselves are different too, FV, FO, and I'd be willing to get FR for Regional. Upward and onward....

    You're an anomaly Bones, in more ways than one.

    No kidding!! I'm either going to have to estimate or spend HOURS going through old run sheets! I have a feeling it's going to be the latter so I don't get nailed for trying to tweek numbers.

    Not only that Catch, but they don't ask the question the same way every year. Last year a question was how many of this kind of call in general and this year they break it down to different situations so you can't just use last years numbers.

    Yep. Usual government approach. Tell us to get ahead and prepare and then switch things around so we have to spend another 2 days looking for numbers. But hey, it's open so don't want to talk too badly. They already had one gerbil on the wheel die to give us the delay from yesterday, can't talk bad about them or the backup gerbil might code.

    Wait a second.... I just realized I saw a 3 year figure?!?! I've got to go through 3 years of runs? I think I know what I'm doing every day off for the next few weeks.

    This is all lending itself to what they told us to expect in ACTUAL risk and probabality of event. Got to have them records done right!

    Hell, mine told me I'm not allowed to leave the house until May 5th. Nothing like living with her mom to create motivation for success....or committing oneself.

    Default Help!!

    Need help from the Grant Guru's in this forum. Made it to final DJ for 2006. Could someone please look at our last years package (or at least an abbreviated one) and give some kind of pointers. Maybe asked for too much, but I thought that it was a "total" fix to our firefighter safety problem.
    Just someone trying to help! (And by the way....Thanks for YOUR help!)

    Aggressive does not have to equal stupid.
