    Question Number of Firefighters

    Help....
    Last minute question.. because the folks I've had review my application differ on which is the right way to go...

    Our department has 20 qualified, trained volunteer Firefighters
    We only have in-service, NFPA compliant structural gear for 12 of them.
    The other 8 can perform medical and wildland firefighting... but nothing in an IDLH environment.

    Under Applicant Characteristics, they ask:
    " How many active firefighters does your department have who perform firefighting duties? "

    My grant application is specifically for 8 sets of structural gear for the firefighters that don't have serviceable PPE, to bring us up to 100% compliance.

    Do I report the total number, even though they don't all have gear, or just the number of ff's tha can perform all of the duties??

    You report all 20. Otherwise you are already 100% compliant with the existing PPE.

    That's what I was thinking too.
    Thanks Brother!
