    Default What year NFPA revision scores best for SCBA

    Okay smart people here....what revision of NFPA will score the best for air packs. Ours are currently under the 1997 revision. Just wondering when I can apply for new SCBA funding, and have the best chance.


    Thanks!!

    Older than 97 standard has been the cutoff up to now as a rule, unless you have heavy call volume and can show that they are worn out from usage & not from neglect or lack of maintenance. Had one last year for an upgrade of 97 packs to include heads up display and integrated pass.

    Had one that I wrote this year for 21 SCBA's, 6-2002 standard, 6-97 standard, and 9-older than 1997. It has gotten a reduction to 10 SCBA but no 1199a yet. Hope this helps.
