    Default FPS grant award

    I just received word from our Senator that Michigan Technological University has been awarded $74,903 for our fire prevention and safety program through the FPS program of AFG. Thank you Kurt for your help reviewing my narrative. This grant will help us improve our kitchen fire safety, our fire extinguisher training, and our building fire safety equipment.

    Now...back to the AFG...

    No DJs yet, $26 million available, no idea how much was applied for.

    Default FPS grant award

    Got ours for $33,630.00. This will hopefully reduce the number of stove top fires.

    Thanks Kurt for your help in Hazard / Jackson Ky.

    They dropped some new ones about 2.5 weeks ago, haven't heard word of anything on SAFER or FP since.

    Unhappy DJ Fps 07

    I just got my DJ for 2007 Fire Prevention.

    We cannot provide you a detailed account of how your application was rated in the competitive process since reviews and other pre-decisional materials are only for internal official use. We can, however tell you that a! panel of your fire service peers reviewed your application, and in doing so, the panelists assigned scores to all elements of the evaluation criteria as listed within the program guidance. The review panel's scores indicate an area of improvement would have been to explain in more detail the on/implementation plan and the methods used to reach the target audience. In addition, the panel expected you to explain in more detail the measurable goals of the project(s) and the plan to evaluate their effectiveness.

    We were trying for 911 address markers.

    Try again in the fall.

    Just got DJ'd for an extinguisher simulator and a smoke and CO detector program. I'm already tweaking the narrative for next year!

    This was just the first wave of denials, plenty still in the game. Looks like the first round of SAFER DJs are out too.

    I also just found our FP DJ. It only showed up on the Status page from DHS/AFG. No e-mail to the contact site listed on the application.

    Well we win some we lose some folks. Over $334 million requested this year and only about $25 million to give away. More money available this coming year though so chin up.
