    Are there any of you out there that are on Vol companies that use the older style MSA Breathing Apparatus with steel tanks?

    If so, Does you department need extra tanks?

    The Capatain incharge of the BA program has a pile of steel MSA bottles that he will have to scrap unless I can find some good homes for.

    If you are interested you will need to email me at greg.gutierrez@fire.ca.gov
    SOON!

    U have air tools??? We switched SCBA's a few years ago. We use our older bottles ( still hydrostatically testable) as air tool bottles, as they aren't compatible with our current breathing apparatus.

    Kind of off topic, but how many bottles does your department have and how many firefighters do you have? (question for everybody)

    Your right. That's way off topic. Perhaps you should open that one up on a new thread.

    Fins and Fire, wish you were on the East Coast. I may have a home for them.
