    Default SCBA Narratives

    Does anyone have a successful narrative for SCBA's that they would be willing to share? We would also like to ask for a cascade system as well if anyone has a narrative for that.

    Anyone see a problem with asking for both SCBA's and a cascade system under the same grant?

    My email is tdpearce@leachfiredepartment.c om. Thanks!

    Absolutely not, especially if the new SCBA cannot be filled by your current system.

    No, problem there. We don't have a system at all. We have to travel to neighboring stations to refill our current bottles.

    But remember one is an attack tool, one is a support tool. So they are related but it does play with the cost-benefit calculations. Not everyone needs a compressor in house, and depending on travel time you may be too close for someone to have any kind of empathy for you. 20+ miles or more one way and you have a case that it's an inconvenience. 3 miles away is like most areas that have multiple stations driving from one to the other, not a hardship compared to the need for the SCBA so together the compressor part would kill the SCBA scoring and get you neither.

    Splitting to get one is better than asking for both since you're not replacing a compressor. Old and falling apart is the priority, you're seeking a 'new mission' to an extent since you're solving the refill problem already with your current setup. The lower the numbers the more focused the app for greater chances of success.
