    Default Upgrade of SCBA and Portable Radio Narritives

    Has anyone had successfull grants on upgrading existing SCBA and purchasing portable radios? We have just went to a new 800MHZ and would like to equip all of our interior FF,s with radios and add to our trucks for ISO ratings. Also we have the SCOTT 50 packs that I would like to upgrade to buddy breathing so that it will adapt to our RIT packs without using the regulator also im looking for some narratives to get a idea on my grant this year.

    thanks

    With this years grant, we were able to upgrade our Scott 4.5 50's to the current standard along with integrated pass devices. I tried sending a copy of the narrative, but was unable to access your e-mail form this site.

    Default 800MHZ Radios

    I am also looking for help from anyone who has successfuly won a grant for 800 MHZ portables. Our county is providing the system, but we need to purchase portables so we can adequately use the new system. Any narratives or other help appreciated.

    THANKS!

    Onebugle,
    Would you send me a copy of your SCBA narrative? That is what we are going to shoot for this year. Thanks! ksmith31@rochester.rr.com

    MSVFD18 and ksmith31,

    I have e-mailed you folks a copy of the narrative that you requested. Let me know if you got it, sometimes my e-mail doesn't send all the info. Thanks

    Lightbulb SCBA,Communications

    Our department just got an award in 2003 for radios,SCBA's and PPE. My advice would be not to mention any brand names in your narrtive as this could cause problems if your department is awarded the grant and lets say you decide to go to Drager or MSA instead. Also it will not increase your chances in any way of getting an award.

    As far as narrtive I could send you a copy of my narrtive but really you need to tell your story as it is your department and you know what you need the most. What my department needed and yours need could be majorly different.

    Remember that those that read your application are members of the fire service and they are the ones you need to sell your story to. If you are in need of these items rememeber you need to sell the idea and explain why your department can not afford it. Also don't forget to explain what may happen if you don't receive funding. Example your department will be forced to lay off three members per shift or your department will have to place this project on hold for two - three years as the needed funds are not availble. DON"T say you will be forced to seek grant funds elsewhere as you will be sent elsewhere.

    I hope this helps

    Thanks

    It sounds like onebugle has you guys covered, but I've got a winning grant from last year to upgrade SCBA and 13 new portable radios. If anyone is interested, I can email them.
