    Default Fire Service Laptop Grants?

    Besides using the FIRE Act, because we are already tapping that for other sources; Does anyone have any ideas on sourcing funding to add laptops to Fire/Rescue/EMS vehicles?

    We're located in New Jersey, and we provide Fire/Rescue/EMS/HazMat service to a very up and coming town that is comprised of Resdiential/Heavy Commercial/Light industrial. In addition we prodive covereage to good sized portions of I-295 and the NJTP.

    Any ideas to help a brother out?

    Everything I state on here is to support and aid my fellow firefighters. Everything I post is my opinion only, and in no way should be taken as an official opinion of any Company, Department, or Municipality I represent... oh and this includes Pierce Mfg, as so their legal department has advised me; since they apparently also invented the right to control "Free Speech".

    Get that up and coming town to provide you what you need to service their area.

    Default Us too

    We are also looking for a funding source for laptops. Getting the local utility and/or budgeting for around 20 units is quite a chunk of change. Any ideas appreciated.
