    Default cold water/ice rescue

    Has anyone gotten any AFG grants for cold water/ice rescue. This would include suits, floatation devices, ice sleds, inflatables (zodiacs)? Just curious if it is possible or is it something that is far fetched.

    On the cold water ice rescue suits, yes you can. We were awarded funding for 6 of them. We are buying Mustangs. We looked at Sterns, but nobody has them and they don't know when they are getting them in stock. Coleman bought out Sterns and screwed things up. Also I had a Sterns Rep tell me that they are having zipper problems with their supplier. Good Luck.

    Yes, we received funding for 4 new mustang suits, all new ropes, pfd and ice rescue shuttle and a factory certified NFPA compliant training session that will be occuring in 2 weeks-------------MARSARS provided very competitive pricing

    The Zodiac will be an issue. Since it's a boat, it is not eligible.
