      can only cover expenses for one year and that you have to spend the
      funding within one year of your grant award date?

      4). If you are selected, do you understand that your department will be
      required to report to National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS)
      for one year commencing at your earliest convenience during the
      performance period of the grant? Nonaffiliated EMS organizations do not
      have to comply with the NFIRS reporting requirement.

      * If you need assistance reporting to NFIRS, you may call the support
      center toll free number 1-888-382-3827.

      once contacted.

      the instructions below:

      https://portal.fema.gov. Once you are into the Status screen, you will
      select Edit Profile located in the top of the screen. Your next screen
      will reveal your personal information where you will see your current
      email address listed. Once you have edited the email address you will
      click on the Save button. You will then receive a confirmation screen
      that your profile has been updated but you are NOT finished ? you must
      click near the top left Authorized Applications. You will then click on
      Firefighters Grant link near the top left to ensure that all updated

      awarded grant(s) and the dates of their POP (Periods of Performance).

      * * * Performance on prior awards is taken into consideration when

      will be required to include a Performance Bond as part of the contract
      with the vehicle manufacturer.

      **Extensions to a grant's period of performance may not be considered if
      a Performance Bond is not included in the purchase contract**

      9b) Do you certify that you currently have a comprehensive
      driver/operator training program (compliant with NFPA 1002) already in
      place or, if you do not have a comprehensive driver/operator training
      program and you are awarded a grant, do you certify that your Department
      will have a program in place within one year of the award?

      Again, this is not a notification of award; it is only a preliminary
      discussion of your application. Once I complete my review, and receive
      your favorable reply to this message, I will forward your application on
      to the next phase. If your department is selected you will be notified

          I only see 9 of the 10 questions, is there only 9?

            Well, we call them the 10 Q's because there used to be 8 numbers, with a 7a&b, and an 8a&b. This year they expanded so it's technically 15, but you have to remember this is the fire service and change is bad. So even if they get to 100 questions we'll still call them the 10 Q's.
