    Might be the last big push before the DJs. But still doesn't seem like this would hit all 2000+ awards that we know are pending. I think we're in for some DJs next week.

        That's sorta what I was getting at. I'd say the final DJs will go out within the next 2 weeks, with a few of those being "if we find more money, you'll be contacted."

        I'm just looking at how many 'non-regular' posters came out of the woodwork this week to post about the e-mail snafu, and we certainly don't account for all those who apply.

        There have to be tons pending now.

          Add me to the "I got Chip's letter" fan club. I was going to call DHS on Monday. I think I may still do that anyway.

            Definitely a lot more applicants than posters around here, although slowly they're being sucked in, I mean converted, to regular visitors and posters.

            They're all realizing that life really begins and ends in here. Says the guy with almost 4000 posts... (cough) Get a life! (cough)

In the greetings line, it reads "Dear Mr. Chip Plankenhorn". That is NOT my name, nor is it the name of anyone associated with our grant. It gets worse when they ask the question about our EIN being correct. They list an EIN in the 10 ?s, but it is NOT our EIN. I did a search for it, and that EIN is for "Loyalsock Volunteer Fire Company Number One" in Williamsport, PA. We are in Louisiana and have a name nothing like "Loyalsock".

              However, the subject line of the email has our correct dept. name and our correct grant reference number.

              It's gonna be a long wait till Monday morning when I can call the Help Desk about this one... Why me???
              You might better hold that call till Tuesday. MLK National Holiday is Monday, they will be shut down.

                  10 q's

                  I received 1199a on the 8th and 10q's today, also for Chip. I made the corrections and sent it back.

                    Mee Too

                    Friday I also got the 10Q's addressed to Chip....I just corrected everything and sent it back. I'm guessing there are going to be some really big award days coming up.

                      Chip has a brother...

                      OK, I got one today too....except, this one wasn't addressed to Chip, mine is addressed to Martin Michaels. Of course, Martins EIN and ours our different, but it does have our correct grant number.

                      Another wierd thing..... This 10Q's is for station modification, and asks several Q's about that, but we wrote for operations and safety.


                      Wierd....

                      I'll be calling the help desk.

                        They probably tried another batch but never corrected the merge problem.

                            Who is Chip? I'm Chipper

                            I sent the Chip letter off first after ONLY checking my online app with only a glance at the EIN in the email. So then as usual I had to resend the corrected 10qs reply including the corrected EIN...then I got a little worried since there are so many scams out there I thought someone had spoofed FEMA's email and I had gave chief the good news and all. THanks whoever started this thread, I can rest easy and be happy we are really shaping up our department thanks to FEMA.

                                I received an email today acknowledging the error and stating that a corrected email would be sent out.

                                Now, if we made a similar mistake on our application, what do you think would happen?

                                Things that make you say hmmm !
