  • SCBA upgrades- question

    I'm looking at a grant with one of my departments that'll allow us to upgrade our SCBA from 1997 and 2002 editions of NFPA 1981 to the current standard. It seems like I've seen others on here that have recieved similar grants.

    The question came up today as to whether or not we can go beyond simply upgrading to meet the minimum of the standard to include some options (RIT lines and built-in tracking in particular). I think I already know the answer and have inquired with AFG (awaiting their response, did it after business hours), but I thought I'd feel you guys out.

    If nothing else, it's something someone else may end up facing in the future and may provide some information in that regards.

    NFPA standard is the min you can upgrade to but option-wise all you have to do is justify those for the cost. Done it for a few dozen where age wasn't the best on the packs but call volume/use said they were beat.

      That's basically what I was told today. As long as it was part of the upgrade kit and we were within our scope, it was OK.

      I actually had to go to our regional specialist. The help desk people wanted to dodge around it since we didn't officially have the award yet.
