    Default Small Equipment

    I'm thinking about applying for enough hose to make our trucks compliant, as well as nozzles and playpipes. Questions are: 1) is there anything else in this area that would be a good fit to include (portable tester, assortment of fittings, etc.) and 2) I can prove the safety aspect up and down, but is this a real high priority in the eyes of AFG? Trying for a tanker on the other side as well, so not really looking into anything real expensive as to make sure there is plenty of funding for the truck. If anyone knows of any prices, I have found a few on the net, but nothing firm.

    Go for it. Most of my hose and nozzle equipment grants have received funding awards. Justify to the officer safety aspect heavily. Ask for what you need, and only what you need.!
