    In the past the AFG has allowed funding to outfit apparatus to NFPA 1901. $30K has been used to outfit a pumper (which a type II is I believe).

    An appeal is in order; it may be as simple as Tech Review not understanding what a Type II engine is and providing clarification could be in order.

    Also for an appeal have a list ready of the required equipment needed to outfit the apparatus per NFPA 1901 along with a cost to prove your case.

    Just the answer i was looking for bugle. Thanks!!! I shot off an email to the GMS about the appeal process, as this will be our first ever AFG. Any information on how to "win" is appreciated.

    If you're replacing a truck the expectation if not stated otherwise in the app is that equipment will be moved from the old truck to the new one. So if it's 20+ year old equipment on the 20+ year old truck being replaced it needs to be more than obvious that's the reason not to move it over. $25k has been the normal limit on hose, fittings, etc on a new truck. SCBA by itself will eat that but that's why they normally keep the price to $25k, not enough money in truck award pool to buy new SCBA for apparatus out of that funding also.

The start of the 2010 AFG seems to change on a daily basis depending on what is heard at workshops. The DJ's (excuse me turndowns) for FP&S have come out after 2 rounds, but 9 rounds of AFG and they still haven't dropped. They all (DJ's) go through the same approval process, so there's no excuse for not having the AFG out when they got the FP&S out in a timely manner.

    Delay after delay after delay without any resolution in sight.

    Looks like the pre-DJ movement is sliding faster... did you have a prior reduction on the truck? Or was it under the price limit? Congrats by the way.
