    Default Gear washer

    My department is currently in need of a gear washer. We don't currently have any official policy in place about gear washing and some members seem to think the crustier their gear, the cooler they look.

    We have access to a neighboring departments washer but it's inconvenient to the point that hardly anyone takes advantage of it.

    What is the process like applying for a grant and when can one start applying for the next round (2010 I suppose)? I'm a total noob to this but feel that a grant is the best way for us to afford this equipment.

    Thanks in advance!

    A gear washer is eligible under the AFG grant. The application period will open on March 29th through April 30th.

    To get an idea of the process go to firegrantsupport.com for info. Go to the AFG site and review the program guidance for 2009 to understand the process.

    The application involves supplying data, demographics and pricing along with a narrative.

    Any questions, just post on the forums there are alot of knowledgable folks here that will point you in the right direction. Good luck.

    Thanks for the information! Looks like I have a short period of time left to get my ducks in a row!

    If you're going thru the work (gear maint. is relatively easy app.) include dryer equipment. And if you need it rack/lockers (as Redrack).
