    Default 2010 AFG Cost Allowances

    Now that we are seeing some movement on the 2010 AFG it's time to start another data base for cost allowances. For those that have seen reductions in costs please post the item(s) with the cost. Some stuff is self explanatory while others such as apparatus, cascade systems etc. are not. Please provide a brief description to better catergorize the items ex. type of apparatus, pump size, tank size, size of aerial, type of cab, CAFS equipped etc.

    Kurt, seems to have the tendency to land on his feet, and he still keeps right on helping when we call and beg for the knowledge.

    Niether ice storms, blizzards, sub-freezing temperatures or the economy will keep Kurt from his scheduled duties.

    I am not even checking reductions. I figure after last year there is someone sitting up there laughing at me, saying "Dance little puppet, DANCE" whenever they see me log on.

    I got the last laugh though. I am not LITTLE! HA! (301 desperatly needs a vacation)

    I believe that is an icnrease over what was allowed last year. I had reductions last year to just $25K.

    SCBA mounted bailout systems were reduced to $450. I had requested $900, thats going to leave us with a lot of local funds needed.

    It's not so much a bag, but a system that's integrated into the pack itself. Kind of like this.

    I understand the system, I was just wondering what accessories. The FFRED system, which the one being sought after (specs are identical as are patent numbers) with every option available is still prices at one unit for right at 600.00

    The basic unit is right at 500. Go in asking for quanity I bet they will be getting real close to 450.

    I hope so. Our local dealer told me $870. when I did the application. That was when scott was buying the FFRED from RIT and there was a lot of uncertainty about where things would land. We are kind of tied to the FFRED though as the NY law requires training on the devices used by mutual aid partners use as well, and the County Chiefs have standardized on this system.
