  • Fit testing

    Who does fit testing in Iowa? Mainly around the Cedar Rapids area. We need to get everyone on the department fit tested for SCBA and not sure who does it or who to even contact really about doing this.

    Also, does anyone know about how much per person this will cost?

    I'm sure Sandry can do it. I'd have to look at our last bills for when we had it done, I bet you're looking at least $10 per person...

      Nationwide Fit Testing

      I own Respiratory Protection Testing out of Seattle but we fit test all over the Country. I'm a Professional Firefighter myself so I know how hard it is get the whole department fit tested. Since I'm the owner of RPT I can get your testing done quickly and guarantee to beat anyone quote. Please give me a call if you have any questions.

      Good Luck

        Yeah... I'm off a bit. Our last round of fit testing was not done by Sandry, but we paid $25 per person.

          Do we need to have spirometer testing done too? I believe thats what was told when someone went for a physical and asked about fit testing.

          I didn't see anything about it when searching but searching doesn't seem to yield everything either.

            The Illinois Fire Store does fit testing, if you want to email me for pricing, feel free to do so.

              We have a member of our dept. that works for the Air Guard Fire Dept. He brings home their unit and does our fit testing for us, no cost! It always helps to know someone. Ask around, maybe one of your mutual aid departments could help out.

                good answer above, check around and see if someone has a machine,

                or buy a machine and do it yourself
