    We always need turnout gear. We have some large guys on our department who need coats. I have not been able to find one myself without ordering new. E-mail me. I am in SE MN.

    we can DEFINATELY use equipment...and we will pay shipping to send it.
    We are a Independent run Company with hardly no budget. :-O
    You may visit our website at: http://www.fire-ems.net/firedept/view/SeligmanAZ/
    What we mainly need is 2 1/2"hose (about 8 sections),a good used set of jaws(they can be older ones),a droptank for our tanker cuz we have no hydrants or water supply in the subdevelopment,and various other small things but this is just an example.

    policescanner3 - july36 - et al


    We are currently working with a Minnesota FD on the bunker
    gear but other FD's are welcome to whatever they do not take.
    I will post more info as soon as I know what is left.

    Other stuff we will give away:

    Several pair of rubber fire boots.
    LaCross/Ranger - assorted sizes.

    2 - 20ft sections of 6 in. supply line. (canvas jacket)

    6 - 50ft sections of 2 1/2 in. hose (canvas jacket)

    6 - sections 1 3/4 in. hose - all have minor leaks and
    cannot pass NFPA hose test but could be used with
    low pressure in non-fire suppression applications.

    1- 150 watt - 120 v. - weather proof portable light.

    1- air tank fill station. For 2216psi tanks -
    water filled - ballistic shielded.

    2 - 500 watt quartz lights - mounted on masts.

    Assorted 1 1/2 in. nozzle parts. Mostly fog nozzle tips
    w/o ball valve and bail.

    1- 2 1/2 in. fog nozzle.

    Assorted air splints.

    1 - weather proof speaker - for siren or PA.

    2 - Sterns cold water rescue suits. (Gumby suits)


    We also have 5 or 6 1 1/2 in fog nozzles.
    These are Elkhart pistol grip nozzles
    in like new condition - I cannot give these away
    but we will sell them at very reasonable price -
    I need to talk to a couple of people and establish
    a price - I will post more on this later.

    We will probably have more stuff to give away
    later this year.

    Hi Rogers...We will take the 2 1/2" hose,the 2 1/2" nozzle and the SCBA air filler...we have NOTHING at all to fill our SCBAS...we hafta take those to a diving shop when we can to get those refilled.
    As for the hose,that 2 1/2" is what were looking for.Were pretty well set upon the 1 1/2,the 1" and the 3/4" booster lines.The 6" we cant use unless it has 2 1/2" reduced couplings(our pumper only has a 2 1/2" suction outlet.Email me at don@tabletoptelephone or call us at the number on our website.If no answer just leave a message becuase were not there all the time...were not a "manned" station.

    Thanks a billion,

    Default Hey July36

    I saw that you're in need of a drop tank. We've got an "extra" 1500gal portatank that doesn't really get used anymore except for firefighter games. I'll try to talk to chief into donating it but I can't promise anything. Email me if you're interested.

    Thumbs up Thanks!

    Got the email last nite. The items we requested are in your mail box. The items requested are much needed, and would be appreciated. We limited and specified what we could use so as many can benefit from your departments generosity as possible. Thanks again!
