  • PPE Grant Question

    Kick me if this has already been asked but I'm looking to finish off my grant for PPE, Head to toe. I've been talking with a couple vendors and pricing seems really high to me. I have gotten a quote as high as $4,800 with every thing. This just seems way to high to me and I don't want to be greedy. Should I go with this cost and hope for the best or do I need to drop it way down. What was the average award last year for PPE I can't seem to find anything online for this.

      I would say shop around. I contacted multiple venders, and multiple company?s that are selling the same brand gear, it?s crazy how much of a price difference company?s give you.

        Gear is generally around 2400-2600. This should get you good,compliant gear. Jeff

          I received an award from Afg last year for complete bunker gear for $3,100 a set.

              When I got a SAFER for Recruitment and Retention I asked for $3,997 for (1-SCBA Mask, 1-Gloves, 1-Pants, 1-Jacket, 1-Boots, 1-Helmet, 2-Hoods, 1-Suspenders). FEMA Knocked my requested down to $3500 and it stated "Reduced based on market research and to be in line with AFG".

              I would conduct your research and ask for what you need even if it's hire than the allocation.
