    Default AFG for Brush Truck

    I have a few questions regarding the grant I'm writing. I'm gonna go after a brush truck.

    Is there a max that can be requested for this category?

    Is there specific equipment that is recommended to go on this truck and if so where can I find that? And should i request the equipment as well?

    Can someone send me a winning narrative to look over for ideas?

    Thanks!

    Brush trucks have been funded at $125 k. They have to meet NFPA 1906
    You can ask for additional funds to equip the vehicle .

    You need to provide an email address to receive narratives.

    Default Brush Truck vs. Type VI Engine

    In the eyes of the AFG program, what is the difference in a "Brush Truck" and a "Type VI Engine"?

    What we are looking at is an engine built on an F-550 chassis, seats 3, 300 gallons, 30+ gpm at 100 psi, etc.

    Is there any priority or scoring difference between a "Brush Truck" and a "Type 6"?

    Thanks in advance.

    This has been the most elusive vehicle I have written for. Any narratives to compare to would be awesome.
