Am applying for rope, caribeaners, ice, and water rescue equipment etc., I think its understood the FD's provide rescue services but do we have to quote chapter, verse, and line of NFPA regulations to explain every entry? It asks after each entry 1. "Will bring dept. into statutory compliance. Please explain how this equipment will bring the dept. into statutory compliance in the space provided to the right." or 2. " Will bring the dept. into voluntary compliance with a national standard. Please explain how this equipment will bring the dept. into voluntary compliance in the space provided to the right." or 3. "Has no statutory basis.".
Go on line to NFPA and they charge some serious $$$$$ to purchase codes/standards manuals etc. Not to mention probably wouldn't get here in time to research and finish the grant application.
