    Default equipment reviews

    Where do you go for reviews or others input when you are thinking about purchasing a piece of firefighting or EMS equipment be it for the department or yourself?

    Thanks

    I start with neighboring departments -- expand to trusted vendors - then go to the internet.

    Not to be a smart*****, but how does the apparatus section have anything to do with equipment reviews?

    I was actually thinking about this today. A review section would be a great addition to the forums.

    To expand on SJY's suggestion - if it's a major item and you have a specific brand in mind, ask the vendor(s) for references.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.
