    Default RIT equipment grant

    We are interested in starting a RIT team in our rural area. There is no other local department with one and we have at least 4 firefighter/EMT's who are interested in the training.

    I submitted a grant for a tanker/tender and am trying to complete one for RIT equipment now. Couple questions...

    1. How much should I put for cost per unit for the kits?
    2. Can I include a trailer/cascade in the same grant?

    Thanks for any help.

    A RIT pack cost about 4000 to 5000. The kit should have an air bottle with quick connect fill, extra face piece, rope, something like a save a jake device, various tools and a tarp to set this on. Do you current air packs have the quick fill connection? Also include funding for training. I would not put a trailer/cascade in with it.

    We were awarded 5 RIT bags, consisting of a 1 hr carbon cylinder, buddy breather connecter, Rit connecter, spare mask and bag. We asked for $4500 per kit, but was reduced to $3000 per kit. Bids came in slightly lower. Hope that helps.
