That all being said, if you have justification for why newer SCBA should be replaced, you may be able to argue for it.
Hope that helps

1997 NFPA 1981 standards
The PG states "Specifically, they recommended that DHS not consider replacement of SCBA that is compliant to the 1997 Edition of NFPA 1981 or the 2002 Edition of NFPA 1981."
Anybody got a better idea of what this means???

I believe last years PG said the same thing, not shure about the year prior? If you have 1997 (or newer) SCBA, a high call volume, the existing packs are worn or require frequent maintenance and can adequately justify it; it's a possibility but will most likely score lower in the whole scheme of things as compared to those requesting packs that pre-date the 1997 standard. Depends alot on the department characteristics. At least that's my interpretation.
