    I wouldn't take the denial word for word, the ones I did aimed for basically everyone in the area over age 16 on the training . After all, common sense says the under 16 should be evacuating not attempting to use an extinguisher but the rest if confident with the extinguisher could make the attempt unless mobility is an issue. Aiming just for the target age groups on this type of project isn't wide enough of a scope.

    I suspected the same but was tyring to base this on what he was told. Ben I also think it may have been more of an issue of cost benefit than target audience.

    Smile 1199a

    I just received an E-mail indicating we need to update the 1199A. Looks like there is a FP&S Grant in our future. I want to thank everyone who posts on here regularly, because I have learned alot from reading this site.

    Good luck everyone.

    99% of the time the 1199A has been recieved before the q's. If you have been awarded before, go to that application and open up the action box (if not check another). You will be looking for "View 1199A"; click on it. Up top in red, all of the awarded and future awards will be referenced. If you see one for 2007 FP&S; that would be an excellent sign for a future award (99.9%).

    If you have not been awarded for any type of grant; go to the current application and go to the Action box. You will be looking for "Update 1199A"; again another sign of a future award (99.9%).

    Has anyone heard anything recently on the status of pending FPS grants? I still have a smoke trailer in the mix and we are working on our fire prevention and safety program for October. I am still hopeful but it seems like the money is starting to run thin. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    Thank you.

    Seems to be a good chunk of money left. To date just over $11 million has been awarded. There is between $16-21 million remaining: $27 million (minimum) to be awarded with $32 million reserved for the program.

    Default DJ-s ?

    We received a DJ on 6-10-08. Is there any special significance to receiving a DJ this late in the season?

    The farther you make it before the DJ the higher you scored. Ye olde close but no cigar story. They're getting a little better with the later DJs, so it may hold some hints on areas that didn't score as well as those sections on awarded grants.

    We are still "in" the FPS waiting game. We asked for a smoke trailer as an educational tool for our schools and elderly. So far we have not heard a peep from DHS about this. I am glad tomake it through the DJ rounds. Honestly with all the attention focused on AFG right now it is easier to wait. Where are we with the funding for FPS? How much is left?

    A rather large round today knocked the remaining funding almost in half, but there's still a good bit out there.

    $7,822,053 remaining.

    I don't think you have any more room on your 1199A screen for another one Mike...
