    Default Weight room funding

    My fire department is currently going through an addition, making our station much larger, and adding additional space to our old and outdated weight room. Since we are spending major dollars on the expansion, little money has been earmarked for upgrading our weight room. I was wondering if anyone has had luck with finding any grants to help, or had any luck with local businesses donating equipment/money. Let me know what has, and has not, worked for you. Thanks.

    We had a new station built and moved in in 2000 (before i was here)...the new facility was to have a dedicated weight room....during the construction phase, they applied for a state grant and ended up getting around 6k, i believe...at any rate, we have a full weight room complete with treadmill, stair-climber, flat incline and decline benches, a multiple workout machine, all olympic weights, full dumbell rack, and an adjustable flat-incline bench with leg curl attachment....its a great room and i make sure to utilize it as much as possible...

    Volunteer department near me applied with the fireact and got several thousand to build a room and hire a trainer to get their program started.
