      Look about two messages before your post and you'll see a good reply. It isn't bad, but no guarantee...

      • Settle in for the long stretch here folk!. My latest intel states that awards will stretch out well into August so it's going to be a long hot summer of waiting. Updating of 1199a's will be sporadic at best so don't lose patience here folks; the awards will come you just have to wait them out. In the meantime may I suggest to you that instead of waiting with bated breath that you begin working on your 2017 AFG application and maybe even think about trying to attend a class from one of us prior to what looks like is going to be a September opening for 2017 AFG. Have questions give me a shout via PM or through here or my website/email.

                            • Seems to be mostly SCBAs. I have been waiting for someone to get a radio 1199.

                              • Can't remember if we have one yet or not. Since they started up again been a Health/Wellness, rescue tools, plus the usual PPE and SCBA suspects, don't remember any radios though. They're usually later in the game because all communications apps go to the state for approval.
