    Smile Computers and AFG

    I have been asked if we could get new computers under the AFG program, I thought it would be a strech but could be justified for NIFERS etc. Anyone ever done thios before??

    Funny it was just brought up this week ......RRRRRRR

    Thanks,

    If you were getting MDT's as part of a communication grant maybe
    If you were getting new computers to support a new fire code enforcement program (handheld/mobiles) maybe as a Fire Prevention and Safety grant

    In general, I want new computers for my administrative staff? Slim to None

    just my opinion, I don't work for AFG, so my opinion is capable of being wrong and often is.

    Interesting topic that this just came up...

    I'm working with a company who owns ZERO computers. They do report to NFIRS as a requirement from a previous grant, but the paperwork is taken to a private residence and done their since they own no computers.

    It is an eligible expense as per AFG guidance, just curious if others have been awarded and if it's worth jeopardizing an award to add it. (Especially since they DO report, just not from the department)

    We received a laptop and digital projector on our 2006 AFG grant under the training section. Listed the projector as audio-visual and the laptop as classroom and explained it as part of an NFPA 1001 training program.

    Its hard to use the NFPA 1001 instructors tool kit "power point" without a PC and projector.

    With all of the questions about training, I think it helps to ask for it.

    If you have left over fire grant $ with approval can spend for fire prevention. Laptop with a projector and suitable fire prevention education materials (DVD or download) are a permissible and useful option. And the laptop might be regularily exercised for other uses.
