I think that liability issue has been resolved most states. on a side not , did you read about the Philippino church buying the ghost town in South Dakota ? Maybe they can pony up some cash for gear.?

Otherwise when I get them Positive pressure units I cut up elephant hoses.
MO has a program through the state fire marshals office to strip away liability issues, but for the most part a simple waiver works well.
Still a lot of departments covering very rural areas that can't afford the 5% match for AFG grants.

Ummn,there WERE "Elephant hose" POSITIVE pressure units. Be careful what you cut if you're in the GIVING mood. T.C.
