    Default Advice on short term bunker gear rental for Re-Cert in Ocala

    I need bunker gear for a 9 day rental to take to Ocala to do refresher then wait 4 days and take Re-cert test. I thought the rental places would work with me but most are asking $350-400+ for just 9 days which is a little ridiculous IMO. I was hoping to find something more along the lines of $150ish.

    Anyone know of a place with reasonable fees?

    Have you called Ocala to see if they recommend other places

    350-400 for 9 days? That's ridiculous. I paid 750 for 6 months.

    Ask your local Dept. I did and they lent me almost new gear without charge to use for my academy. In fact they probably forgot I had it since I returned it to them almost 2 years later when I did get hired!
