FD-5 applies for a grant through Firehouse Sub’s Foundation

Pend Oreille County Fire District 5  is applying for a grant to replace the air tanks used in our Self Contained Breathing Apparatus SCBA’s  . The District has 11 air packs  and a total of 22 air bottles.  Most of bottles are up for replacement this year. With the failure of our lid lift for the last three years the district was forced to look  else where for funding.  Firehouse Sub Shops have a foundation that helps First Responders with equipment.   We are applying for 19 bottles at a cost of 25,000. We need 22  and we are have three bottles that expire in 2021 . By then we hope to have money to replace them.
