    as with anything Sly, the sales folks are padding as much as they can. want to send their kids to college.

    We bought a 6000 osi 30 hp 3 phase compressor with a 100 ft hp hose reel ,8 bottle DOT cyl cascade bank & 3 bottle fill / frag chamber for $32k back in 2004. That included about $4k for electrical upgrade for the compressor install.
    Have done several 6 bottle systems since then and gotten them funded at <$35k with a little leftover change to spare.
    Seems that some parts of the country have higher pricing because they can get away with it.

    Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this, but we were awarded $2,500/set of turnout gear. When completing the application, I thought I remembered FEMA listing out everything you could include in a set of turnout gear, including coat, pants, boots, helmet, hood. I can't remember what other items were included in a set, though. Does anyone remember that list? Thanks.

    What's included is how you defined it within the application.

    From the PG:

    AFG considers a “set” of PPE Turnout gear to be comprised of these NFPA
    compliant components, one pair (1) pants, one (1) coat and one (1) pair
    suspenders

    AFG considers a “complete” set of PPE Turnout gear to be comprised of these NFPA compliant components to include one pair (1) pants, one (1) coat, one (1) helmet, one (1) hood, one (1) pair boots, one (1) pair gloves and one pair (1) suspenders.

    In those AHJ’s where additional PPE, like Personal Safety/Rescue
    Bailout Systems are statutorily required, AFG will consider all statutorily required items to be part of a “complete” PPE set.

    Question, in 2009 I wrote a winning grant for turnout gear. I'm in a different department now but they are in the same boat that I bailed my previous department out of. Being a small rural department I feel like I was better able to justify the award by only purchasing the needed items for each member to meet 100% compliance, not head to toe gear because they needed a helmet or boots. That being said does anyone have any input on limits for head to toe gear including flashlights with items listed separately instead of the generic $2500 per set?
