    Default Station Modifications

    Looking for some help on station modifications. We are requesting a station compressor (we received a SCBA grant last year), a gear washer/extractor and dryer cabinet. We also need to do some mods to our station to install these. The electric needs to have outlets added for all 3 units. We will need to enclose the compressor in a room (db levels). I see the AFG guide does not have provisions for these mods. If I submit for them, will my request be denied or have a lesser chance of getting to peer or better?

    It is already justified and ready to go but I want to make the right choice. Any help will be great. Thanks in advance.

    As long as you are not changing the footprint of your structure, and the expenses are less than $10,000, they are eligible if added to your budget in the construction category and adequately justified in the narrative.

    Or buy an enclosed/quiet compressor. May have to go to better quality brand. A compressor doesn't have to be a rattling banging POS. Get what you pay for.

    Bauer has some that you can stand next to while talking on your phone.
