For those replacing SCBA, are you getting all new or just replacing some? What brand is being purchased?

No new apparatus for Raleigh? WOW!!! That’s a mistake. Wonder why the replacement request was not approved? Last I saw on paper was a request for 5 pumpers which would have replaced 3, 8, 12, 15, & 17. 3 would become 29, 8 would become 5, 12 would become 21, and 15 & 17 would go to reserve along with current 21, 5, & 29.

As with most municipalities in the state, the city took a hit from the state’s repeal of privilege licensing. Saw $7.1 million cited in one news story.

Raleigh does have a tiller and an Engine on order from the budget that ends in june. also, Smithfield has ordered a new engine and a new ladder. Brogden in Johnston county has a new engine in production as well.
