    do they ask or the age of ur apparuts and do they want to know if they are a open cab or not an if anyone has any other info on what they need to know and what isthe best method of getting them

  • #2
    The application has historically required you to enter your fleet age and fleet inventory. You will receive additional consideration for a true open cab apparatus (not canopy cab/3-sided cab) or if you are attempting to replace a vehicle which was not originally designed for the fire service.

    If you let us know what your current fleet consists of (and whether you are a rural/suburban/urban department), we can attempt to guide you in the right direction.

      If you go to the program guidance it will tell you all the information needed to apply.

      Yes you have to list all apparatus owned by the department , by type [ engine, arial , tanker rescue, brush ]
      You will have to list the year of manufacture and how long you have owned them.

      Other thing such as open cab or canopy cab, whether they were originally designed as fire apparatus or are converted from other use such as milk tankers , whether they came equipped with seat belts or other safety devices all count in the scoring.

      ps SLy & I were typing at the same time so same info given.

      A fleet average age of 25 years seem to be the minimum needed to get an award in most cases.

      There are many more applications for trucks than funding allows for , so you will be scored both by the computer and if lucky enough to make the cut , by a peer review panel who will read your complete application and score the need against other departments of the same type as yours [urban,suburban, rural] .

      Odds of being successful in getting an apparatus award used to be about 1 in 25,
      Now with reduced funds available the odds are probably in the range of 1 in 50 applications received. Maybe even higher.

          Haiving a little trouble decyphering here, wvfire.

          You mention 5 stations but only tell us about 4 pieces of apparatus. Pierce did not make true open cab fire apparatus in 1991. You must be referring to an open jump seat or crew area. A true open cab by AFG definition includes no roof.

          What is your call volume and how old is the rest of the apparatus?

              If you are talking in relation to an AFG grant; yes you do. If awarded a grant; the vehicle or equipment must meet applicable NFPA standards.
