Posted February 7, 2014 4:04:28 PM CST


I wanted to take a minute to provide everyone with a quick update as to where we are in the purchasing of the FY13 UASI Haz-Mat and TRT grant equipment as layed out in the grant applications.  It should be noted that items that say "PURCHASED" means that the equipment/training has either been approved and is going through procurement, or it means that we awaiting delivery of the items.  Items that say "NOT YET PURCHASED" means that either we are still waiting for a formal quote, or that there is some other issue that needs to be worked out at the next meeting.  Thanks
