    Default What to do with old equipment?

    Our firehouse has replaced several SCBA that no longer met NFPA standard. The question is, what do we do with them? They were purchased with a grant, so they can't be sold. Is there a way/place to donate them?

    I know of a number of departments in the rural Ozarks that are using airpacks that are still the demand valve elephant trunk units. Departments with budgets of less than 10k - for everything, insurance, fuel, electricity, etc. I can turn you on to them if you want.
