    My department just received a grant of $50,000.00 with us matching $20,000.00 for equipment. We purchased 12 sets of the MSA Stealth Breathing Apparatus, 8 bottle High PressureCascade system, and 22 sets of PBI Gold gear, helments, hoods, ringer extracation gloves, regular gloves, leather boots. It was called a Rural Development Grant from the Federal Government, the contact for me in Maryland should be able to give you a phone number for your local guy. Pete Wesp: 1-301-694-7522.
    If I can be of any other assistance, just email me. squad85@yahoo.com
