Our two volunteer groups namely " Dee hwa Liong Volunteer Fire Brigade" Quezon City, Philippines. with 20 personnels, and "Guardians Fire & Rescue Brotherhood International Inc." Valenzuela City, Philippines with 25 personnels, would like to appeal for your help regarding old, used, 2nd hand fire gears such as, fire helmets, hoods, turnout gears, gloves, SCBA Packs & masks and fire boots that are not any more in use at your departments and for disposal. May we request it as your donation to us here to be puit into good use in saving lives & properties here.

    Most of what he is asking for wouldnt be of use to a US based department if it isn't of use to yours. Not to mention the whole liability of giving someone else your outdated gear thing (in this country anyway).

    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.

    I know of departments in OK, MO, and KS that don't have enough turnouts. SCBA, I will give the departments out of the country a pile of demand valve SCBA, but plenty of departments that are out there in the US still have demand valve units.

    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.
