We would be doing hospitals, transfer stations(garbage) ,gas,oils,colleges, local schools, lumber yards....... your local town stuff with a few other twists. Thank you Dean

Since you state your location is out on "The Island", you should be contacting your county coordinator who will in turn contact the Office of Fire Prevention and Control in Albany about getting on their list of teams being formed.
We here in little Seneca County, half way between Rochester and Syracuse, are in the midst of getting and training on your new State supplied equipment. We have a ways to yet, but we are making great strides with a really good group of people. We have had to apply for a lot of grants, got some, got turned down on others, but we are making do.
If you have a dedicated group willing to lobby OFPC and your state and federal representives, you should be able to get some equipment and/or funds. Good luck.
