    Well this starts the checking process. Every time you are near a computer you will now check your email as well. As was said in an earlier post "Let the games begin".
    I have already checked everything this morning twice, email and AFG login. No luck.

    Now the $20 question...are you a previous winner or is the 1199a a new thing to you? The answer will either calm down or increase the pulse rate of the rest.

    Couldn't resist temptation, had to check the app, nothing yet, but I'm hoping these emails are for first-time recips and previous winners will just get the questions!!!

    Tell me about it Warren. I just finally grabbed breakfast. "Luckily" I only have 350 of the 493 logins, so I "save" 2 hours of checking there. Had coffee, now I need a Monster...

    From what I can gather this was a very small release (~200-300) and equipment only. Don't hold me to it, information is only as accurate as the sender so that's what I was told. May be more later today, but more likely to be next week or a larger one the week after to keep the award announcements rolling every week once they start.

    Happy checking!

    I know I have seen this question in the past but cannot remember the answer to it... If you get an award 2 years running will they ask for a new 1199a for the current year or will they go to the previous year to look for it?

    1st time award or 2002-3 awards it should be an Update link. 2004-6 awards it will be under the old 1199A. Reason for the 1st sentence is I've found a few 2002 awardees who have had a later 1199A separate from the 2002 or 3, but also seen some with all on one.

    Also if you've been awarded in 2004-6 you probably won't get an Update email, it will just get handled with the 10 Q's.

    Just a formality as usual. Had our update request a couple of weeks ago.

    Nothing on my end, but maybe they will do it in person while I'm here in DC.

    I've noticed a bit of a pattern--there seems to be a small release of 1199a updates and additions at the beginning of each grant cycle, same with the 10q's when they start dropping. This seems to be followed by a few weeks of no activity. My GUESS is that it's a systems check to make sure it's all going to flow (as smoothly as possible) when the stream starts.

    Oh, no change here. I managed to check a time or two today!!

    Looks like Catlin will be getting $50,500 worth of new gear!! Woohoo! This is turning out to be a pretty great day. I know that one of the other departments hasn't gotten an update yet for their SCBA project but not sure about the other 4 departments I worked with.

    This could have been a test firing of 1199As. I'd say it worked, Chip Plankenhorn didn't get emailed a lot. Oh wait, that was the 10Q email, not the 1199A. Still time for them to get that one screwed up...

    Trucks will probably follow soon, I'm surprised there weren't any this morning since they front load the awards so much with trucks to get them awarded and more importantly ordered.
