volunteer squad/equipment grant questions
regrettably my volunteer fire dept has been going through some issues regarding some funds.... The volunteer fire dept that I'm a member of is a part of Riverside County Fire dept. We have had plans for quite awhile to look into getting a new squad, recently however our older squad completely died. We've had that squad for over 20 years and it has ran great. Unfortunately the main problem is the transmission and it's a fairly large project no mechanic is willing to work on it and we don't think we should put that much money into repairs on an older squad. We would like to look into grants that would allow us to buy a new squad. Anyone recommend any or know of any that would help us off the top of their head? Also in the future we might be looking into getting an equipment grant anyone recommend any of those too? Thank you very much for any help you're willing to give.
