    Default SCBA Question

    "What percentage of your on-duty active members has PPE that meets current applicable NFPA and OSHA standards in effect at the time of application?" Is this just protective clothing or is SCBA included in this?

    You answer the % question based on what you are applying for, in your case SCBA. If you were also applying for PPE (turnout) that would be answered as a seperate question.

    NFPA.org. Air packs are NFPA 1981. Breathing air quality is 1989. Structural apparatus 1901, wildland 1906. Firefighter safety is 1500. (is driver training 1502??) Another 10 or 15 years and i'll have all of them mezmerized.
