    Default Lost and Destroyed Equipment

    What are the Fire Departments doing about all of their equipment and apparatus they lost. I know fire departments in the area that are upgrading via FEMA grants and they are going to have some old stuff to get rid of.

    Is there a website?

    Thanks for the help.

    Not really sure if any one really wants any of the old stuff they are having to get rid of. Maybe the flooding and high nasty water has damaged the apparatus and gear too bad, if they are having to get rid of them. Why would any one want this junk?

    It would be like buying a car from that area that is being sold in Ohio as a "good used car", only to find out down the road that it was covered in flooded water and all the electrical parts, computer and so on will short out and cost more than the price of the car to repair!

    Not worth having.

    Stay Safe and Well Out There....
