Questions about SCBAs and other items
I have a couple of questions for you guys. I applied last year for a couple of air packs and new hose but we were turned down. We made it to peer review for what it is worth. We are replacing 2 old Scott air packs that no longer meet standards. I know that when purchasing new air packs they must meet NFPA 1981, 2007 Edition and be CBRNE certified. Can you purchase packs from say Dalmation fire that meet these specs with funds provided through FEMA?
Another question I have. We provide BLS for our area, though we do not respond unless requested by an ambulance. I hope to change that soon. Anyway, we have 5 Basics and 1 Paramedic and the rest of the members do not have any medical training. I would like to get them up to at least Medical First Responder. Can we apply for 2 AEDs for both of our pumpers along with Pulse Ox and medical bag even though we have low run volumes for calls? It would be nice to have these items on every type of call that we respond to.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
