    Default Light Tower / CAFS system question

    I am trying to find out some info for a department that asked me for some input.

    Has anyone had success with either a Light Tower or CAFS being funded through AFG. I have never applied for these and don't remember seeing them listed on the AFG Allowance pdf that is shared on this site. The CAFS would be added to an existing engine. I have seen them funded along with the apparatus - but wasn't sure if it had ever been done by itself. The Light Tower project I was thinking was not such a good idea because of the other solutions that are more economical.

    Thanks in advance for any responses and input.

    Done both successfully, but it's a split. The CAFS is a vehicle app because it's altering the workings of the truck itself and it's primary job of pumping. Rechassis, pump, tank, body, are all Vehicle projects.

    The generators, light towers, and whatnot are Ops grants. Nice part about that is you can do other lighting stuff not just what's attached to the truck since it is an Ops grant, so you can do tripod lights, cords, etc if you are lacking there too. Couldn't do that on the vehicle side.

    So I could tell them - they can apply for both - CAFS under vehicle and the Light Tower under Ops? They are still allowing an app in vehicle and then an additional app for ops correct?
