“Our department had a lot of fire hose that was going bad faster than we could replace it. Our station was hit by flood waters in the same year. Due to the help of Steve our grant to improve our water delivery capability was greatly needed. We were successful in securing a grant for $34,000 to replace all of our hose, finally get 5” supply hose, and money to train our department to the FFII level and the turbo draft water appliance we also purchased. Without the grant that Steve was able to get for us, our large diameter hose would still be 2 ½”, and the possibility of having half empty hose beds was real. Wit the flood issues our department had to now provide medical coverage for our response area. This unexpected expense set us back a little. The grant helped us to have dependable hose and increased training for our department. I would definitely recommend the services of Steve and will use him again this next grant period.” ~ Rob Sullivan, Palo Fire Department - Palo, Iowa.

"Steve Meyer helped four of our southern Iowa towns receive new radios. Due to the mandatory upgrading, our Volunteer Fire/EMS services were in dire need of assistance in purchasing these radios. Steve was very helpful and very informative. He touched base with us throughout the whole process right up to the awarding of the grant. I would recommend Steve to anyone needing assistance with an AFG Grant as well as any other grant they might need. Thank you so much Steve. You are awesome to work with and our little communities really appreciate how you helped us." ~ Patti Jimmerson, Grand River Fire/EMS - Grand River, Iowa ~ Doug Moffett, Leon Fire/Rescue - Leon, Iowa ~ Stan Lavely, Garden Grove Fire - Garden Grove, Iowa ~ Bruce Blair, Lamoni Fire - Lamoni, Iowa.
