    328,000 for new repearters, some mobiles, hand 36 hand helds, all P25 for a 4 county retiong (8000 square miels) with IIRC 8 VFDs.

    All of the firt out and command vehicles will get the mobiles, something like 7 repaters will be updated across the 4 conties, and everybody will have at least a few P25 hand helds.

    Mutual aid should now be interoperable at the higher ICS levls with dicimination and tac channels covering the raging hoards...er, I mean strike teams.

    Accepted a reduction

    DHS will not fund our new radio base towers in our regional comm grant. Reduced our potential award from 520k to 375k. But if this goes we will still be getting new pagers, mobiles and portables along with dispatch center upgrades. Said they couldn't justify cost benefit of upgrading dispatch and a few departments with towers. FYI for others

    A few good years!!

    Just a quick visit to say hi... Just took possession of our new Holmatro extrication gear purchased by our 2006 award... this makes 4 of the last 5 years that our rich Uncle Sam has been good to us with the fire grant. I think between this and a Homeland security grant, we are now in excess of $400,000. The biggest problem here has been getting our town, namely the officials, to recognize the legwork put into the grant submission process.

    Received our Grant Package this morning for $78,414 for 11 new CBRN SCBA's with 22 facepieces, RIT Equipment, PosiChek 3 and FitTester 3000.

    The only question I have for the experts is: They reduced our Grant $2700 for the respirator fit tester, but they applied it to the PosiChek 3. Is it to late to try and get them to reverse this?

    Anyway congrats to all the other winners today and thanks to all the people on the forum for hours of enjoyable reading.

    I guess its time to start buckling down on 2007 AFG and CEDAP.

    I also belong to the "Limbo Club" , what great club, free stress, free unlimited email checking, free 1199a checking. What more can you ask for in a club. If you would only get a free drink for each time you check to see if the 2006 (1199a) would appear . To all the club members, let's all hope that we get notified one way or another so the doors to the club will be closed for another year.
