    Default Bid Specs for SCBA's

    A neighboring FD has an "Update 1199A" this afternoon for his Ops & Safety Grant for SCBA's and PPE.... Anyone have any sample "bid specs" for SCBA's that we may use?
    Thanks in advance... David accesslocks @ sbcglobal.net

    Doesn't have to be deep, can just be a list of what they can't live without. Like 30min cylinders, 4500psi, NFPA 1981-2007ed compliant. Also as long as there's nothing proprietary in it they can snag one from a vendor and cut & paste pieces of it into what they're looking for. But honestly as long as they evaluate 2-3 brands they can just go buy instead of doing a bid then evaluating. DHS doesn't care as long as there's a documented evaluation prior to a purchase. Unless of course the local regs say they have to do it in a specific order or something like that. Local always rules unless it's less stringent than the fed requirements.
