Here are some examples:
Turnout Gear (5 sets at $2500 ea) - This is worn every day and wear and tear reduces the fire retardant
capabilities of the gear often before the mandated replacement time of ten years.
Desktop computer (4 at $1500 ea) – Our current computers are out of date and need to be replaced.
Purchase would allow all officers and training personnel access to a computer.
Auto Extrication tool (electric)(1 at $9,500) – Our current extrication tool is hydraulic and must connect to
a truck to operate. An electrical tool is portable allowing it to be taken directly to a remote accident site.
AED (2 at $1000 ea.) – People often stop at the stations to get emergency medical help. If our apparatus, which
carry our medical equipment are on a call, the patient is at a disadvantage.
This donation would allow us to have AED's available inside our building.
Portable radios (10 at $850 ea.) – We have several portable radios that are past their useful life and we need
additional units for recently employed staff.
