SCBA Changes: Will this effect this years grants?
With the proposed 2013 NFPA 1981 Changes will this make 2002 SCBA's be eligible to be replaced? 2012 Guidance state...
"When requesting to replace old or obsolete equipment, you will be asked to provide the age of the equipment being replaced. In order for SCBA/PPE to be considered obsolete, it must be a minimum of two NFPA cycles or 10 years of age or older."
This will put many of the SCBA's at 11 years and more than two cycles out.
What are your thoughts?
