Our department is going to be turning in an AFG grant for a new 3000 gallon tanker this year but I've run into an interesting question. We're hoping to replace an '83 tanker and an '87 "tanker" (it used to be a milk truck) with this new tanker. Both of these rigs have numerous safety and maintenance issues and if we win this award, both will be taken out of fire service permanently.
The other firefighter writing this grant with me isn't sure whether we should state that we will replace both rigs should we win. She is concerned it will raise eyebrows that we'll be taking two rigs out of service. She's wondering if it would be better to focus on replacing the worst offender of the two (which is a toss-up; that's a different story though...)
Anybody have any input/advice?
