    They won't drop the Peer DJs until much later in the game. In theory if people refuse (it happens every year) then they have to move on down the list to the next in line so they just hedge bets. Back in the day we'd get 5+ rounds of awards out then the lowest scoring after Peer got their letters, several more award rounds, then more DJs, etc. Easier to just do them all at the end, after all once about 12+ rounds are out depending on how large the lists are then the writing is mostly on the wall if you're not holding an 1199A at that point.

        I heard tell of 1, but they will ask for copies of the MOUs before that so 1199A is 2nd step for regionals.

              How will you be contacted for the MOU, email, phone or message on the portal?

                Personal email plus should be a copy in the portal also but sometimes that part doesn't work.

                        Just got back from New York and found 4 1199As. God is Good.
                        If God be for us, who can be against us. Jesus said, I am the way the truth and the light.

                          Question for you all. We received a DJ in May and it says for equipment. We were requesting SCBA's, a compressor and a tester. The Compressor and tester is listed as equipment and the SCBA's as Personal Protective Equipment. Does the DJ include all the request or just the compressor and tester?

                            Correct, that means the SCBAis still in the game. It would have either been 2 sections with the same form letter sections one with the heading of PPE and the other with a heading of Equipment if they both got canned, or would have said "PPE, Equipment" as the heading instead of just equipment.
