    Default Help need with AFG category gear washer

    OK, this is probably over thinking the issue. We are writing a AFG grant for a washer/ extractor. I would assume its not under PPE or "other" under PPE. According to the guidelines if its not worn its not PPE, if I read it correct. I dont think its Fire Fighting Equipment since its not used to fight a fire, or is it modifications to the station, since its bolted in and requires plumbing an lines run to it.

    Does anyone know what the allowance is for one of these, I cant find it. Thank you

    If anyone has a good narrative please shoot me an e-mail thank you.

    It's under Equipment. You will see it way down in the drop-down box. It is not considered facilities modification.

    I don't know the cost allowance.

    Good luck!

    Thank you guys! They want both in not sure if asking for both is greedy. Or we should just stick to the washer, or if no one will use the washer without the dry because they will be afraid the gear will be wet when they need it.
