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?FTM-PTB DTRT
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".

We're getting one, a toughbook, through our local Electric/Gas utility through their comunity service grant program. Our second laptop, a Dell, we bought through normal channel via our budget.

Get that up and coming town to provide you what you need to service their area."This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

We obtained 4800.00 from FM Global for Laptop and software.

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.Captain/EMT-P

This is one site that has alot of grants and it is searchable by state and or who is offering the grant.
What are you planning to do with the laptops
Ems,Inspections or preplans?
