    Default Looking for apparatus

    Was wondering if any body out there may be looking to get rid of an apparatus that they no longer need that they may have replaced using the fire act grant. My department is currently opperating out of a 1976 American Lafrance and its on its last leg. We have time and time again applied for the fema grant with no success. We have applied for state grants and again no success. My volunteer department relies soley on donations and grant funds to maintain and purchase equipment. So funds for a new truck are slim to none. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Applicants wanting to benefit from this consideration must certify that the unsafe vehicle will be permanently removed from service if awarded a grant.
    I think you may be hard pressed to find anyone who was awarded a grant that will donate a vehicle because of this clause in the PG.

    Medic315,

    You'll find many departments have vehicles available, all you have to do is ask and perhaps give a list of Requirements.....

    BTW....

    Are you asking for a donation? or do you have a working budget?
