    I heard a rumor that there was going to be a provision in the 2011 AFG for training academies but have not seen anything concrete regarding it yet.With AFG's push for proper training at NFPA 1001 certification levels it only makes sense that they would do something to foster this theory.

      It would make sense but boy would that start a fire storm on the boards.

        If it does go in it's more for funds to do training, maybe some prop funding but no buildings or anything like that. At the Fed level it's HUD or USDA, probably uphill run to make an Economic Development grant work. Otherwise it's into the private foundation world.

          This would not apply to portable units I assume?

            If academies are allowed to apply they'll be able to do buildings not mobile props. Departments will still just be locked into mobile props only, that part hasn't changed.

              If this ever changes I know one training academy that seriously needs an upgrade.
