    Question Grant amendment %

    Trying to get a handle on AFG thinking with SCBA reductions to quantities. I've got several SCBA reductions were they cut the quantity to exceed those older than 1997 compliant or on others are coming in under. I already tried NFPA min# units per vehicle and that seems to work sometimes but not always.

    For example

    Year # of NFPA compliant SCBA
    2007 Standard
    2002 Standard
    1997 Standard 15
    Older Standards 7

    They reduced us to 8, 3 engines 1 arial 1 other asked for a straight replace of 22.


    2007 Standard
    2002 Standard
    1997 Standard 14
    Older Standards 14

    3 engines 1 brush 1 rescue. total seated pos. 30 asked for a straight replace hoping to get 14, got reduced to 12.

    Certainly plan on questioning quantities at 10q just curios if anyone else has seen any trends in quantity reductions.

    Mike,

    Friend of mine had applied for 28 SCBA to replace all 1997 standard. Reduced to 8 SCBA @ $5,250.

    Fleet consists of 6 pumpers (total of 24 riding positions, 1 brush, 1 rescue with 7 positions, and 3 "other")

    1199A appeared today.

    Makes no sense.

    This has myself wondering..... We put in for new turn out gear and 10 SCBA's (need more but only ten riding positions). All but two SCBA's are pre 97, other two are 2003. The gear was reduced but nothing on the SCBA's put in at 5k. Havent heard anything on an 1199. Dont know what is happening, may not get one since they did not reduce the ten down to eight?

    Well, 97's have been replaced last year -- just depends on justification / frequency of use.

    This argument wouldn't work anyway. They won't give them 28, but they'll give them 8? All are 1997s.

    Cool not related to memebrship

    I also spent time trying to correlate staffing-membership # to number of units, still no hits.

    Guess I'm building a spreadsheet to cover the variables, if you've got similar data I'm interested.

    Two more days of archery season and get the SAFER'S submitted then we'll get down to crunching these numbers.
