    Default SCBA Extra Face Pieces

    We are a volunteer department with 25 FF's, we are submitting an app to replace 10 17+ year old SCBA's. My question is how successful have departments been in requesting additional face pieces so every FF has their own? Also what is the allowed amout for addtional face pieces?

    You can request extra face pieces. The limit is $400.00 each. We received funding this year for 23 new scba's and also was awarded additional 11 face pieces. Good Luck.

    We were awarded 19 masks, never mentioned the amount of scbas currently owned, neither were we asked. Masks were about $95, voice amp was around $300.

    We also were awarded extra facepieces. Request one for each firefighter and explain that 100% of your firefighters will have their own, properly sized facepieces which eliminated cross contamination, germ spreading, etc. Also mention if any ff's wear spectacle kits the time saved if each firefighter can have their own mask set up prior to the emergency, rather than having to put their kits in a shared mask during a call.
