  • New Firefighter and Damaged PPE

    Question for the more experienced folks that are here -

    Dealing with a relatively small sized volunteer department. We had four new members join in the last two months and don't have PPE to issue them. We also have four members that have damaged pants that should be replaced. We have 35 firefighters in total (including the 4 new members).

    I thought I was entering things correctly, but I ran into "error messages" - please help.

    I tried to make two entries: one for the damaged pants and one for the new members

    For the Damaged PPE: I entered the four damaged pants in the inventory. I listed 27 members with PPE that meet NFPA Standards. I didn't list anything for the Box #6 question, since I'm not replacing their gear, I don't have gear to give them.

    For the Increase supply for New Members without gear: I entered four sets of gear, I 31 members that have gear that meet NFPA Standards, and I entered "4" in Box #6.

    But, now I'm getting the following Error Message: Validation Error

    You must correct the following error(s) before proceeding:
    • Please answer at least one positive entry for PPE Current Inventory requesting field(s).
    • Please answer at least one positive entry for PPE Being Replaced requesting field(s).

    What am I supposed to put in there since I'm not replacing their gear - I don't have gear to give them?

  • #2
    You would enter your current inventory (27) and select (0) for replacement...if I'm understanding you correctly. It's a confusing glitch for sure.
