        Correct Kurt--trailer is not a vehicle so the vehicle matrix is not applicable. I too thought we were also "way out of the box" when we applied in 2009, but the use we have gotten out of ours since we put it in service is incredible. The fill capability we now have has brought that trailer to a variety of scenes, and it quickly becomes a central base when it goes out. We also spec'd an RV style commode so there is a small area to "freshen up" and that feature is greatly appreciated by many of our area firefighters.

        It is a valuable enough piece of equipmant that i would favor air supply trailer as an available item for regional grants--not every department needs one, but in rural areas it's an important thing to have available within a half-hour to an hour. Three bottle cascade on a truck gets it done most of the time, but when it doesn't the trailer is a great multi-function tool.

        Just my opinion...

          2: Has anybody received a reduction and/or an 1199A for a vehicle exhaust system or generator? (I know these are lower priority)

          I have a client with an award # on a vehicle exhaust system with no reductoins at this point for $167K.

            Well great minds think alike Earl. LOL!We have done a few rehab and air trailer combos succesfully over last couple of years. I agree with you on it being a great "sharing" asset wherever it is at.

              Excellent! Are they a career 24/7 station? Also - is it a hose based system, and how many drops?

              Thanks

                Earl, if you don't mind I may try to get with you on that project some time. I'm looking at combo unit like you're describing for next year's project. With the number of bigger fires and more usage of mutual aid in our area, one would be very beneficial.

                  An 1199A, and no reduction (yet).

                  If this really, truly happens, it'll be my first successful vehicle grant.

                  Thanks again for your class, Kurt!

                            Currently on a flight to LAX; FlightAware.com shows me somewhere over Kentucky at 30,000 feet. Checking 1199As.

                            Is this a record?

                                Just climbed to 32,000 due to turbulance. We'll see if I can top it

                                In the meantime, just had a seizure patient in 8A I had to tend to. At least on this flight when they paged for medical assistance, no dental hygenists showed up like my Seattle flight
