    New Program

    BC - one of my officers dropped me the link this AM. is this a private firm? just the little bit I have read leads me to believe that there may be a purchasing commitment tied into this program - win the grant, get $, spend it with this firm, and oh by the way, the cost for the full whatever is $X more than the grant.....

    just my Brooklyn roots (some one always trying to pull a fast one!) speaking.....

      Target Safety is a private company, and there are no monetary awards. Only free training from the company for departments for 1 year. No purchase required.

          Considering how inaccessible and expensive some types of online training can be I would hope more people are excited than are posting. Free is free, and considering how many people I deal with that say training is an issue this is one way to make improvements. Have to exercise the brain as well as the brawn.

            My thoughts exactly Kurt, I'm sure some of my guys I have to play school teacher and stand over their shoulder and make them do it it, but a threat to clip their wings until they completed it would work I think

            I talked it over with a few board members, they're all for it, to the point they'd be willing to put internet access in the station for the guys who don't have it at home.

                    I'm just being incognito. Don't want everyone knowing what I'm up to while I apply for it.

                            Congrats there new Papa! You didn't tell us.

                            Mine hits 11 months in 12 days. Let me tell you how time flies. She went from rolling a little to crawling at warp speed in about 3 days. Now she's starting to walk. I'm going to need a homing beacon on her soon.

                            And first time Dada came out? I'll forget my name before I forget that.

                            Enjoy the little one and blessings to you and the Mrs.

                              Why thank you sir. This is actually #2 (both boys thank God, and big bro being 19mos.). Just wait, the homing beacon will be a dang good idea, especially at the fire house.
