    Good news for Iowa.

    I admire your sources. As of right now, there is no word of award announcements on either Firehouse.com or the FEMA web site.

        The notifications are probably through the various congressional offices. Last year we didn't hear anything from them because we cover 10% of one and 90% of the other. They sent the release to the smaller one, and since most of their area is in city limits, they didn't know what it was all about. Other office had the press release for a week and didn't know either. Hopefully it's because they were busy handling govt business (cough, cough).

        Anyway, congrats to all so far. Hopefully the full list comes out this weekend.

        Doesn't look like a whole lot of money up front. Must be some big $$ ones coming down the pike. Otherwise would have to be handing out more than 7000.

        But anyway, great wins all around. If anyone wants to share successful narratives or if I have yours on my website and it becomes successful, let me know so I can mark it for you.

          Yes, this comes from Senator Harkin's website. I found out last year that it was posted on his website several days before firehouse.com and FEMA.
