Grants-Grants-Grants, and unique things that qualify!

Hardly a day goes by that someone doesn't call to ask about grants.  Let's face it.  Every government agency and volunteer organization vitally depends on grant money.  That much we know.  What many of us don't know is where to find non-traditional grants or for that matter what to apply for and how to write a successful narrative.

As most of our readers know, vendors are precluded from assisting in the preparation of FEMA Fire Grants (other than providing budgetary pricing information and product literature).  That restriction does NOT apply in the case of corporate endowments such as the programs extended by Firehouse Subs, Georgia Pacific, State Farm Insurance, and Walgreens (among others).

In our September eNewsletter (, we cover the specifics of one opportunity.  What we did not cover were the specifics of a simple, efficient, and affordable in-building communications range extender that is of particular benefit for firefighters working in office buildings, schools, hospitals, large stores, plants and warehouses.

The price of this device falls within the limits of most corporate grants and the benefits extend to all parties concerned.  It's called the I-Box2.  If you would like to know more about this unique device, give us a call at 205.854.2611 or email us -
